Wiretap: The GOP’s civil war goes to the bathroom

Bathroom wars

The North Carolina bathroom law has provoked a GOP civil war between social conservatives and big business. The problem for Republicans is that they can’t afford for either of them to lose. Via The Washington Post.

Corporate culture

The National Review sees it a little differently. The problem, writes David French, is the progressive corporate culture.

Go pro

Trump decides it’s finally time to go pro — at least in hiring some people who can professionalize his campaign. Thank you, Colorado. Via Politico.

Then who?

If it’s not Trump and it’s not Cruz, who could the Republicans turn to? The New York Times names five possibilities. And, yes, one of them is still Paul Ryan.

Still there

And why is Ryan still in the running? Because professing to have no interest in the job could well be his best selling point. Via The New Yorker.

Missing plan

Steven Rattner: Note to Republicans, if a Republican Congress had actually done something to address the issues of the working class, there would be no Donald Trump phenomenon. Via The New York Times.

Winning choice

Polls all show that John Kasich could well win in November. So why won’t Republicans vote for him? Via Vox.

Super sized

Hillary Clinton has a superdelegate problem of her own. It’s just not the same kind as Bernie’s. Via Slate.
