In the February 27 edition of Capitol Report on News9, Patrick B. McGuigan said he had “deep concern for the future of the country and the Republican party if Donald Trump is the nominee.”
He told reporter Alex Cameron that Trump would be the least distinguished and least qualified of any GOP nominee for president or vice president, “in my lifetime.”
McGuigan said any of the remaining hopefuls – Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Ben Carson – would represent Republican values better than Trump. As “Super Tuesday” comes for both parties, the CapitolBeatOK editor expects Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic primary.
Wrapping up, McGuigan applauded news that the University of Oklahoma had settled a lawsuit concerning Nazi-looted painting. He praised former state Rep. Mike Reynolds and state Rep. Paul Wesselhoft for gaining bipartisan support to restore the art to the Meyer family of Paris, France.
