At least eight staffers have left the Republican National Committee at least in part due to discomfort over the party’s nomination of Donald Trump for president.
Politico reported Wednesday that deputy press secretary James Hewitt, spokesman Fred Brown, director of Hispanic media Ruth Guerra and research analysts Lars Trautman and Colin Spence have left in recent months, citing Trump as a reason for their departure.
“Personally I wasn’t comfortable working to elect him,” Spence told Politico.
At least three other staffers have also left, Politico reported, citing Trump as contributing to their resignations. A total of 11 staffers have left the RNC since March, the news outlet reported.
Well, at least they’re leaving voluntarily, not because it was revealed that they colluded to rig an entire primary system.
As awful as the RNC has been at everything for so long, it’s really not a negative reflection on Trump that he is chasing some of them. Actually, this may be the most positive thing to happen since he officially became the nominee. If ever an organization needed a house cleaning, it’s definitely the RNC.
The media loves a good “GOP in turmoil” story, but this still pales in comparison to the party chairperson being forced resign in disgrace as that party’s convention begins. If Deb were a Republican, we’d still be getting fifteen stories a day about that.
