It is hard for me to understand what they see as political suicide. There is nothing left of the Republican Party except Trump and his inability to do anything but be an ever greater embarrassment? At some point the Republican Party is going to reform and move ahead in some legitimate way. I would be willing to bet that reform will not be by or for the people that road it all way into the ground claiming helplessness. And I would think there is a limited time frame to save yourself or it will be suicide.
