CIA guy with a stint on Wall Street turned congressional aid turned...presidential candidate? Sounds like a Tom Clancy character.
Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction, for that's the capsule resume of Never-Trump-personified Evan McMullin. Wharton MBA with a BYU undergrad, conservative with a soft spot for refugees, a Central Casting hero.
Minor problem; he's missed the filing deadline for half the states. He might be able to make a dent in the states he badgers his way onto the ballot, but it seems like it's a month late and a few million short.
Places like Nebraska (with NeverTrump Sen. Sasse), Utah and Texas where Trump did poorly in the primaries could be flipped away from casino-red..if he's on the ballot. Sorry, write-in candidates won't work, since you'd have to write-in a slate of electors and few states even let you try.
