HE'S NOT A REPUBLICAN:

Republican Officials Ask RNC to Stop Funding Trump Campaign (REID J. EPSTEIN, Aug 11, 2016, WSJ)

"Every dollar spent by the RNC on Donald Trump's campaign is a dollar of donor money wasted on the losing effort of a candidate who has actively undermined the GOP at every turn," the letter reads. "Rather than throwing good money after bad, the RNC should shift its strategy and its resources to convince voters not to give Hillary Clinton the 'blank check' of a Democrat-controlled Congress to advance her big government agenda."

The letter has been signed by five former GOP members of Congress: Mr. Shays, former New Hampshire Sen. Gordon Humphrey, who said he may vote for Mrs. Clinton, and former Reps. Tom Coleman of Missouri, Mickey Edwards of Oklahoma and Vin Weber of Minnesota.

The vast majority of signatories to the letter are former Republican staffers, including 15 who worked for the RNC. Others signing include Bruce Bartlett, who was an economic policy adviser to President George W. Bush, Rory Cooper, who was communications director for then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Sharon Castillo, who worked for the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign and the RNC.
