We know the Trump campaign has sent some staff from Virginia to North Carolina. Does this mean the campaign is abandoning Virginia? Not according to the Trump campaign or the Republican Party of Virginia.
The Trump campaign issued this statement:
“We remain absolutely committed to winning in Virginia. While we’re reallocating some of our staff strategically to accommodate early voting in nearby priority states such as North Carolina, our campaign leadership and staffing remains strong in Virginia.”
RPV statement on Trump campaign realignment, issued by chairman John Whitbeck:
“Republican Party of Virginia and Republican National Committee teams have been on the ground in the Commonwealth for two years preparing for this election. Our commitment to winning Virginia for all of our Republican candidates remains unchanged.”
“The media reports saying the Trump campaign has withdrawn from Virginia come from unnamed sources and a former state co-chair who was terminated by the campaign.”
