Yesterday I linked... a piece in the Hill which listed all the Republicans (so far) in the "Never Trump" movement. 

Last week, Bloomberg had an article which mentioned all the Republican senators who won't even attend the GOP convention in Cleveland this summer. So far, four are definite no-shows: 

John McCain of Arizona, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Two who are "on the bubble" include Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. (That's Sen. Graham in the picture, above, with the Donald during happier times, probably when Trump was questioning President Obama's birth certificate. Wasn't that a hoot?)

One senator, Rob Portman of Ohio, will kinda sorta be there, although he is "planning his own parallel convention," whatever that means.

And three members of the upper chamber will stop by for at least a cup of coffee: Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Richard Burr of North Carolina and Roy Blunt of Missouri, who said he will attend for “a day or two.”

I'll keep you posted on the list. Psst: It could grow a little.
