RNC OFFICIAL FROM NEBRASKA QUITS OVER GROUP'S FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF ROY MOORE; STATE GOP TO PICK HER SUCCESSOR NEXT MONTH

The Alabama Senate election has sent fissures through the GOP. These divisions are so strong it resulted in one prominent Nebraska Republican leaving her position with the party. Joyce Simmons, a National Committeewoman for the RNC handed in her resignation after the party’s decision to support Republican Roy Moore in the race. Moore had been accused of sexual assault and harassment with teenage girls. The RNC had initially stayed away from Moore when the stories began to come out but came back after President Trump dismissed the allegations and supported him. Ben Sasse praised Simmons for her move saying “It takes guts to admit your party is a mess, and that’s what Joyce did by leaving the RNC today.”
