For anyone that follows politics this is a crazy story. He's the only Jewish Republican in congress would have been the first Jewish speaker and is one of Israel's greatest supporters.

Can he still run in the general election as an independent perhaps, and if he wins, convert back to the republican party?

no
He can, but it would have to be as a write in, so a real long shot.

I read online that a candidate that loses in a primary cannot run in the general but perhaps its wrong

Can't "run", but can be elected.

All that might be true, but the voters could care less about that. He couldn't make up his mind on amnesty. & wasn't the tea party over ? Guess not

True but the above is why I am disappointed. I find it strange that a professor of economics is anti immigration reform

Crazy how the tea party is killing the GOP & it's brightest stars & making the next president guaranteed to be a democrat again by voting in loonies who the general public will never vote for

The primary system in this country needlessly polarises congress.

The GOP had their chance with McCain & Romney. Very far from tea party material. Didn't work. They want the senate more than the WH
