At least one GOP headquarters in Wisconsin appears to be confused about who is actually running for president this election term.
When visitors walk into the Racine County GOP headquarters, a large presidential campaign poster is hanging on the wall to greet them – but it’s not a Trump/Pence poster – it’s a Romney/Ryan poster.
Plenty of yard signs are available for all the different campaigns taking place –and over in the corner, overshadowed by large “Ryan for Congress” signs are the Trump/Pence yard signs.
A source familiar with the Racine County GOP office told us that when GOP volunteers go door-knocking, they take yard signs to pass out from all the other campaigns, but they don’t take the Trump/Pence signs.
Local residents are still coming into the GOP and asking for the Trump signs, however. People are also asking for the larger Trump signs intended for high-visibility areas, but are told that they’re in Waukesha and no one has gone to get them yet. Our source said there’s a question of why the GOP doesn’t have someone assigned to distribute the shipment of signs across the state.
People are also reportedly coming in to the GOP headquarters to pick up Paul Ryan yard signs – but not for the usual reason – they want them for target practice, said our source. Voters are angry with Ryan for disinviting Trump to the fall festival last Saturday.
Trump and Ryan were supposed to appear together at the festival – instead Paul Ryan disinvited Trump over the 2005 tapes of Trump released by the media. The backlash against Ryan was fierce – when he spoke at the festival, he was heckled and booed. This week his campaign signs have been found in the garbage.
Another source who is familiar with the Waukesha County, Wisconsin GOP headquarters has forwarded us photos of a large supply of Trump/Pence campaign signs sitting in storage, waiting to be distributed, with the election just 28 days away.
It is unknown just how long this shipment of campaign material has been sitting there, but reports have been made that people who have requested the signs are being told the signs are all gone and the new shipment has not arrived – fueling speculation that the GOP has intentionally withheld the signs and abandoned Trump.
The Trump pages on social media have been sharing the photographs shown here and placing pressure on the local GOP to release the signs in storage,
When Dennis Michael Lynch called late this afternoon to inquire why the signs were not being handed out, he received a voice recording which we believe reflects the pressure from volunteers. It starts off, “Hello, if you’re calling about Trump signs we now have them available.”
