Well maybe I'd not pick a fight with the state's GOP chairman. But then I’m not Don Trump. Trump’s Ohio state director says campaign has severed ties with state Republican Party chairman Excerpt: Donald Trump's campaign has severed ties with the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, according to a letter from Trump's Ohio state director that highlighted extraordinary intraparty discord in a key swing state less than a month before the election. Robert Paduchik, Trump's Ohio state director, said in his Saturday letter to members of the GOP’s state central committee that state Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges, whom he copied on the note, “does not represent or speak for the candidate and he no longer has any affiliation with the Trump-Pence campaign.” The Columbus Dispatch first reported the letter, which appears under Trump campaign letterhead and was confirmed by Seth Unger, Trump's Ohio spokesman. In it, Paduchik writes that Trump is “very disappointed” with Borges's “duplicity,” according to a conversation they had this week. Paduchik accuses Borges of embarking on a “self-promotional media tour with state and national outlets to criticize our party's nominee.” Well... maybe Trump had finally caught up with an earlier piece in the WaPo: Trump’s bad week is a ‘nightmare’ for the GOP In that piece, which outlined the troubles Trump brought on himself by flipping out for a week over a reference to Alicia Machado in the first debate, Ohio's GOP chairman was among those interviewed. Reflecting upon Trump’s actions, Matt Borges, the Republican Party chairman in battleground Ohio, said, “Can this thing just end — please?” “My God,” he sighed, “what a nightmare.” Borges said he has personally urged Trump to run “a very disciplined, different kind of campaign,” although he remains confident that Trump will carry Ohio regardless. Of course by now Mr. Borges might not be so sure Trump will carry Ohio, although he's probably professional enough not to say so. As far as Trump running a disciplined campaign, lots of luck. Different, yes. One of a kind, we could hope.
