Some Republicans thinking of committing political suicide.

Anna Palmer / Politico:
Dozens of Republicans to urge RNC to cut off funds for Trump  —  More than 70 Republicans have signed an open letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus urging him to stop spending any money to help Donald Trump win in November and shift those contributions to Senate and House races.

Some in the GOP suggest a suicide maneuver that may do the very opposite of what they intend  (they were never very smart to start with).

To pull all the funds from the Trump campaign (their new strategy) including RNC sponsored ads,  would insure an open rebellion from the rank and file membership.  They (the rank and file) would simply walk away from the congressional elections but support the election of Trump.  

Everyone loses in this scenario.  What GOP leadership (i.e. the "70") thinks is this:  they will call membership's bluff and go with this plan.  

Problem:  if the membership is not bluffing;  if,  in fact,  they WILL walk away from the congressional elections,  the GOP is out of existence.  

Me?  I say,  "Let's play this game."  Start dealing,  you bunch of GOP Morons.  We weren't bluffing when we stayed away in 2006 and you lost the House and Senate.  We weren't bluffing when we stayed away from the conservative hating John McCain in 2008,  adding the size of the Obama victory.  We stayed away from Romney,  and he lost, as well.  In 2010 and 2014,  we  -  the conservative base - went to the polls  and scored two landslide victories,  proving our campaign power.  Now,  the GOP Establishment thinks it can defy history.  

You see,  the past 10 years prove that "we" are not bluffing.  We,  the peon class,  do not give a damn.  We hate commies and socialists,  but more than this,  we hate those who pretend to be our friends and lie to us  . . . . . . . .   over and over and over and over again.  

If 10% to 15% of the GOP base are Trumpsters,  as regards the vote,  that is 6 to 9 million GOP voters walking out the door,  never to return.  And therein is the threat.  Let the autocrats call our bluff.
