Reince Priebus’ greatest fear is a repeat of the last two presidential elections.

The Republican National Committee Chairman gave a stern warning to fellow-Republicans of the consequences of not casting your vote for the GOP nominee come November 8.

“It’s a suicide mission for our country, because what it means is that you’re throwing down not just eight years of the White House, but potentially 100 years on the Supreme Court and wrecking this country for many generations,” Priebus told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “And so, I think that’s the legacy these folks will leave behind.”

Wallace observed that there was an effort to promote a third-party candidate, led by former GOP nominee Mitt Romney and conservative commentators William Kristol of The Weekly Standard and RedState’s Erick Erickson.

The group considers Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, to be unfit for the White House, and are urging other Republicans, including Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, to enter the race.

“I think they should consider the ramifications of what’s going to happen on the Supreme Court, get assurances from Donald Trump that they’re satisfied with that would show that he’s committed to those conservative justices … and I think that’s the better way to go as opposed to this third-party route.”
