It looks like some political operatives are jumping off the Trump Train!!
Jim Murphy, Donald Trump’s national political director, is out of the campaign, a troubling development for Trump coming just 19 days before the election.
Murphy said, “I have not resigned but for personal reasons have had to take a step back from the campaign.”
Personal reasons = saving their career.
Since joining the Trump campaign in June, Murphy has played a key role in setting up field programs in battleground states. He has also been a central point person between top Trump campaign officials and the Republican National Committee. Murphy also helped to oversee floor operations at the Republican National Convention in July.
Murphy is a close ally of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, having worked together on Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign. Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign in August.
It’s the latest departure in a campaign rife with turnover. Manafort resigned from the campaign in August, just two months after succeeding Trump’s first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was fired. Other campaign hands, including longtime party strategist Ed Brookover, have also left.
