None of the three Republican presidential candidates still in the 2016 GOP White House race is committing to support whoever the party chooses as its standard-bearer in the fall campaign.

This contradicts the stance that Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich took early in the campaign when they and other candidates at the time raised their hands when asked in a debate to do so if they would back the eventual choice.

The three were asked this question again Tuesday night in town hall appearances in Milwaukee hosted by CNN.

Trump, who is the front-runner, replied, “We’ll see who it is.” Cruz said, “I’m not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and children.” And Kasich said, “I will wait and see what happens.”
