Trump campaign denounces Ohio GOP chair, deepens party rift

Collapsing under the weight of his past behavior, the Republican nominee's campaign is going out with a flash bang, sending shock waves across the political galaxy.

In a further sign the Republican presidential candidate's free-falling campaign is sowing deep divisions within a party in crisis, the paper quoted some of those who have given millions of dollars to Republicans as saying the scandal surrounding the real estate billionaire threatens the party with lasting damage unless it repudiates him. They must be so sad that they wasted "Lyin'" on Ted Cruz.

Paduchik said Trump is "very disappointed in Matt's duplicity".

By focusing on tearing down his party, Trump could potentially cost the GOP its House majority and Ryan his job.If that's the direction he continues to take, the victor of the 2016 election could be the Americans who are least likely to vote - the poor.

Trump promptly plummeted in the polls as his campaign became consumed by a deluge of disturbing scandals. It doesn't seem to me that the right response is to engage in similar hysteria and over-reaction to Paul Ryan's move, a move only necessitated by words directly from Mr. Trump's mouth.

Speaking to a crowd of about 100 students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Republican student organization, Ryan focused on House Republicans' legislative priorities and only alluded a few times to the presidential election.

He withheld his backing for months, finally bowing in June.

Now, Trump is worrying that the election is going to be taken away from him, but the exact term he used was "stolen".

Bradley doesn't care where it is because he has a special memory of his encounter with one of greatest golfers of all time. Arnold Palmer died Sunday at 87-years-old, but his legacy lives on at Rivers Edge Golf Club in Shallotte.

Paduchik accused Borges in his letter of having "routinely exaggerated his relationship" with Trump and accused the Ohio GOP chairman of "promoting himself" in a bid for the Republican National Committee chairmanship. "Don't walk yourself into some freaky personality contest".

"I speak and meet with Bob Paduchik and Trump team members regularly", Borges wrote. He even got him to sign a loyalty pledge. "The chairman is also driven by an apparently insatiable need for publicity".

Even after Sunday's debate, in which he continued to try to dismiss his comments when questioned by moderator Anderson Cooper of CNN, many Republican leaders nationally and in Virginia said they would not publicly support Mr. Trump outright, but explained that the election is between "no good choices". Kasich has refused to endorse Trump, and numerous governor's top political aides aren't working for the nominee.

Trump has called his accusers "horrible liars" and has declared he will prove the allegations aren't true.

"If you want to be able to lead your life, then you want to have a country funded on core principles that allow you to lead your life... it's optimistic, it's hopeful and it's inclusive because it applies equally to everybody", Ryan adds.

In US presidential politics, OH carries a certain cache: no Republican candidate has ever won the presidency without it. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is Trump's running mate. "If Hillary Clinton wins and she is given control of Washington, if she is given control of Congress, it will not be long before we come to that precipice".

The twice-elected Florida attorney general is a prolific fundraiser who was touted as a potential gubernatorial candidate in 2018.

"Despite all of the awful things (Trump) has said and done, he is still trying to win this election", she said.
