Republican presidential candidates who break the pledges they signed — to not run as a third party candidate and to support whoever the GOP chooses — will be "held accountable," says Orlando Watson, the Republican National Committee's communications director for black media.

Watson told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that the GOP is taking the candidates at their word.

"They will be held accountable and we're going to have to trust them, having signed the pledge," Watson said Monday to guest host Amy Holmes.

He did not specify how anybody who breaks the pledge would be disciplined.

Last week, former New York Gov. George Pataki told Newsmax TV that he would not vote for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump despite having signed the pledge.

Trump signed the pledge, but had stalled until the last minute saying he would not commit to not running as a third party candidate if not chosen as the Republican nominee.

Watson said: "We're proud of all of our candidates and whoever our nominee is, we want to put them in the best position to defeat whoever the Democrat nominee is."
