Ed Stack, the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods and a longtime Republican donor, is testing the waters for a possible third-party presidential bid that could scramble the dynamics of the 2020 general election.

Various messages were presented to a focus group in southern Wisconsin this week centering on the billionaire businessman, along with possible three-way match-ups against Donald Trump and Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren.

The focus group, according to a source who took part in the testing, ran through varying themes involving Stack and heavily focused on his example of "showing leadership" by halting the sale of assault-style rifles at all of Dick's Sporting Goods stores in the wake of the high school massacre in Parkland, Fla.
...
A source familiar with Stack's thinking said, "Mr. Stack enjoys running Dick's Sporting Goods and has no plans to run for any elected office."

The message testing told a different story.
...
The session concluded with participants asked to vote on sample ballots that matched up Stack, Biden and Donald Trump and then Stack, Elizabeth Warren or Trump.

Stack has taken on a higher media profile in recent weeks, coinciding with the release of a new book, titled "It's How We Play the Game." This week, Stack took aim at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to make headway on gun reform.
...
At a recent event to promote his new book, Stack referenced a meeting with Parkland parents.

"One of the things I asked the parents from Parkland as we were leaving was, 'What is it that you would like me to do?' They said, 'We would like you to keep the conversation going,'" he said in Binghamton, N.Y., where he grew up. "That was a big watershed moment and we need to keep this conversation going. Which is one of the reasons I wrote the book. It talks about all the things you did to build the business to be in a position to be able to make these kinds of differences. One of the reasons to write the book was the commitment to those families to keep it going."


The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

The left is gonna have Tulsi for a spoiler.  Could this guy be the right's spoiler?  Hard to believe he is considered an R with the choices they've made on guns in their stores.
