Bill Kristol, a fine picker of presidential, and vice-presidential (Palin) horseflesh if there ever was one, thinks that 2012 loser Mittens Romney can be run as an independent candidate.
Texas' filing deadline is Monday, per Ballotpedia. And, no Repug is winning as an indy without winning Texas.
Four other states have deadlines before the end of June and another half-dozen by mid-July.
It's obviously not Kristol klear that the deadline for an indy campaign has come and gone, and that's not without asking how reluctant Mittens is anyway.
Such is the level of desperation, though, that the party that is home of the non-reality-based-community has doubled down on fleeing reality.
