Gillespie campaign seen as snubbing Trump operative, causing uproar

RICHMOND — Ed Gillespie’s perceived snubbing of a former Donald Trump operative he had hired to whip up support for his gubernatorial campaign is causing an uproar among GOP activists already exasperated by Gillespie’s highly cautious stance toward the president.

Jack Morgan had expected to play a key role at a Gillespie rally headlined by Vice President Pence on Saturday in Abingdon, a coal country region that voted overwhelmingly for Trump in November, activists said. But he found himself sidelined.

Morgan’s wife was so offended that she refused to drive John Whitbeck, chair of the Republican Party of Virginia, to the airport for his return trip, according to three Republicans familiar with the matter. And in an area of the state that Gillespie needs to turn out in force to overcome Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) on Nov. 7, activists took to social media to vent their outrage.

Interesting.....Tell us more

But don't worry about HIM...this is how HE campaigns in Virginia...
