Politico reports the first draft of the pledge said: "I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is. ... I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate."
In the first GOP debate earlier this year, Trump refused to rule out the possibility of running as a third-party candidate, a move many Republicans fear could pull votes away from the eventual nominee if it's not Trump. (video via Fox News)
