Los Alamos
This scenario will only occur provided that there is a brokered Republican Convention.
I will assume that there is a stalemate between Cruz, Trump and Kasich. You start by rejecting all three of these candidates who have managed to destroy each other in the primaries. Then pick a set of dark horse nominees who are to the right of Hillary, but will be acceptable to moderate Republicans and many Democrats.
