We haven’t heard much from the newly-joined independent candidate, which probably isn’t a good sign. Nonetheless, any alternative offered to the horror that is Donald Trump is a good thing, and we are eager to learn more about the Republican candidate who recently launched his Independent bid against Trump just a week ago.

Evan McMullin is a veteran of the CIA and chief policy director of the House Republican conference. He is also a man who has never held elected office.

McMullin sat down with NowThis Election on Tuesday to discuss his candidacy and platform.
