Scarborough later revealed that the candidate is Evan McMullin, who serves as chief policy director for Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives and a former CIA agent. He’s expected to make the announcement sometime Monday

Before actually announcing the name on the air, Scarborough sent out a series of tweets:

Scarborough said on the air that while the candidate knows that he has no chance of winning the presidency, he added “this has more to do with stopping Donald Trump than actually electing a president.”

Scarborough also tweeted that the candidate had never held elective officer before he finally revealed his identity on social media and the air.
