Michael Patrick Leahy reports at Breitbart.com:
Best-selling author Brad Thor is expanding the tweet that started a social media firestorm. On Tuesday he sent out this tweet: "Hey @Reince and @GOP - let me be perfectly clear. If Jeb Bush is the nominee, I will never vote Republican again."
"Thor, whose thriller, The Lions of Lucerne, was published in 2002, has written ten additional New York Times best-sellers. His most recent novel, Act of War, was published in 2014, and a new thriller is in the works," Breitbart reports.
Thor is "not squeamish in detailing the current condition of the United States. 'I believe that the problems facing this country are so dire I don't want someone who is going to kick my dog less'," the best-selling author said, according to Breitbart.
"We don’t need a patrician manager of the big federal bureaucracy in D.C.," Breitbart quotes Thor as saying. "We need an absolute constitutional warrior, not only someone who is going to whittle this government down to the size it should be, but someone who is able to rally everyone behind him or her. . . . It's more important to put someone in who's going to fix things, not manage its decline."
