State GOP chair fires back at Trump campaign

houseforgopchairColorado GOP State Chair Steve House fired back at Donald Trump’s presidential campaign yeseterday, saying campaign staffers know they were treated “fairly” in Colorado, but are attacking state Republicans anyway because they want to advance a “narrative” that “typical politics” is “unfair and improper.”

“Alan, [Colorado Trump Campaign Director] Patrick [Davis], even [Senior Trump Advisor] Stephen Miller, who visited us out here, they know I didnt send out the tweet,” House told KNUS 710-AM yesterday. “They know that’s not who I am. They know I didn’t treat them unfairly.

“They also know they weren’t in a great position to win delegates here, but at the same time they have a campaign to run and there’s sort of a narrative out there about the system and typical politics being unfair and improper. And they are trying to keep that narrative up, and it’s going to come a little bit at my expense.”

cogopnevertrumpHouse is referring to a tweet stating, “We did it. #NeverTrump,” launched on the state GOP Twitter feed Sunday, after it was clear Trump didn’t win a single Colorado delegate to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.

On the radio, House again denied that the state party was responsible for the tweet, and he said an investigation is underway.

House said on air his office is “very, very close” to figuring out who sent the tweet, and he promised he’d announce exactly what happened as soon as he knows.

In response to the GOP anti-Trump tweet, and other issues, the Trump campaign tweeted, “This will not be allowed,” implying that Colorado might figure into a challenge of the outcome of the Republican National Convention.

Trump’s attack on the Colorado GOP exploded across all media platforms yesterday, generating death threats and 3,000 calls to the state party, House told KNUS afternoon hosts Steve Kelley and Krista Kafer yesterday.

  1. If The Moderatus isn't coming by, I can substitute. House and his crew basically dis-enfranchised Colorado Republicans by eliminating the presidential straw poll on caucus night. I didn't bother to go the the caucus this year. One of my neighbors, who did go, said I didn't miss anything. There was not even a vote for US Senate nominee.

    There are nearly a million registered Republicans in Colorado and less than one percent actually get to attend the state convention as delegates or alternates. We need an effective primary in this state in the worst way, if for no other reason than to get the people back engaged instead of the senile old guys in their smoke filled backrooms.

    I'm not a Trump fan. But both he and Kasich basically got screwed by House and his cronies.    C.H.B.
