Maybe Jeff Flake is starting a groundswell. Maybe a small trickle at least. Today a number of Republican speechwriters and strategists joined Flake in contributing to Doug Jones’ senate campaign, claiming that it was to “save the GOP.” RawStory:
On Wednesday evening, former John McCain and John Kasich strategist John Weaver announced that he, along with four “fellow true GOP warriors” were donating to Doug Jones’ campaign in hopes of saving the party from itself.
The Republicans joining him in donating to Jones are speechwriter and McCain collaborator Mark Salter, Harvard Belfer Center Senior Fellow Mike Murphy, crisis communications strategist Matt David and Jeb Bush campaign alum Tim Miller.
Proud to join my fellow true GOP warriors @MarkSalter55 @murphymike @MattSDavid @Timodc in donating to @GDouglasJones for U.S. Senate. We’re doing this to put America first, but also to save the GOP. Doug Jones is an honorable man & will be a good Senator. #CountryOverParty
