Okay now this is getting serious.
Let’s be honest, as much as many of us Democrats are enjoying this, and enjoying the schadenfreude, we don’t want Trump replaced. Trump as the candidate is a Hillary win. And Mike Pence isn’t much better. A candidate who supports gay conversion therapy isn’t really that much of a step up.
That said, the RNC has at least temporarily halted the operations of some of the “Victory” program that is devoted to electing Donald Trump. The move comes as the GOP nominee is under mounting pressure from elected Republicans to step aside after he was caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women.
In an email from the RNC to a victory program mail vendor, with the subject line “Hold on all projects,” the committee asked the vendor to “put a hold” on mail production.
“Please put a hold/stop on all mail projects right now. If something is in production or print it needs to stop. Will update you when to proceed,” said Lauren Toomey, a staffer in the RNC’s political department.
The email was sent to at least one RNC victory program vendor. Rick Wiley, a top RNC official, was cc’d on the email.
Neither Toomey nor Wiley responded to requests for comment. An RNC spokesperson also didn’t respond to a request for comment.
