I have a question my friend, and hope you know the answer. Who calls the "shots" in the Republican Party.. seems that don't really care what the people want, except our money...(somtimes to me) ... but, who decided to make Trump sign the pledge or he could not run Republican.. and then I heard Speaker of the House, say, the Republican Party told them Not to buck Obama... or I think that is what he said.. so, it got me to wondering.. WHO is this Person, that is running the Republican Party!
I am so afraid you will not like my answer. Others may just get really PO'd with my comments. Oh, well. It will not be the first or the last time.
In my humble opinion we have no "leadership" at this point and time.
Yes, we have elected "leadership" within the GOP organization. Yes, we have the "leadership" positions in the House and Senate. Yes, we have "leadership" positions filled in the State and County organizations. However, we have little to no LEADERS.
We seem to have a wussification of want-to-be leaders.

The problem is leaders must have a backbone. Leaders must be able to analyze issues and put teams together to come up with not one, but varied options (believe it are not very few problems and issues have 100% straight forward solutions). Leaders must be willing to stand firm on principles flexible on solutions.
Leaders and followers need to understand even our Founding Fathers had to work together to come with the document called "The Great Compromise" aka the Constitution of the United States of America.
Leaders must not allow themselves to be bamboozled by the extremists on either end of the rope attempting to be the King of the Hill. They need to realize the majority of the people lie between the hands on either end of the rope.
Leaders must resist what many feel is the "Root of all evil?" Organizations, groups, Parties are too easily bought off by the rich and powerful.
All this to say there should be no pledges blackmailing candidates. The only pledges they should make is to listen to all of the people, use common sense when deliberating their choices and actions and use the Constitution of the United States as their Manual of Duties and Leadership.
Whose calling the shots?
Look at the paper currency and coins in your wallet or purse. It is not the faces you see on the currency. It is not their legacy. Those in control are the faces of those who have the currency, the connections and the power the currency buys.
