A large group of former elected Republicans, former RNC staffers, and former Republican presidential campaign operatives have signed a letter addressed to RNC chairman Reince Priebus asking him stop spending money on the doomed Trump campaign.
The letters expresses a grave fear that Trump is going to sink the entire party.
“We believe that Donald Trump’s divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent the GOP from drowning with a Trump-emblazoned anchor around its neck,” states a draft of the letter obtained by POLITICO. “This should not be a difficult decision, as Donald Trump’s chances of being elected president are evaporating by the day.”
I can hardly wait.
Priebus isn't going to take their advice, of course. Priebus reportedly threatened to cut Trump's campaign off after he refused to endorse Paul Ryan, but he didn't. I don't believe there's anything Trump could say or do that would prompt Priebus to take that kind of action.
For their sake, Republicans should probably replace Reince Priebus the next time they have a chance to. I hope they do if only because I've officially run out of ways to mock his name. Maybe I'm not digging deep enough.
