Billionaire Donald Trump says he is considering taking the pledge to not run as a third-party candidate if he doesn't win the Republican nomination for president.
A senior adviser to Trump told ABC News that he may take the pledge
that he refused to take Thursday night at the first Republican debate hosted by Fox News.
While the real estate mogul has said that he wants to run as a Republican, and he plans to win the nomination, he also has said he would consider a third-party run if GOP leaders don't treat him well.
The first question at the Fox News debate
asked the Republican candidates to raise their hand if they could not pledge to support the eventual nominee of the Republican Party and not run against that person through a third party. Trump was the only candidate who raised his hand.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus
has said that he thinks it's a pledge the candidates should take.
