Matt Borges has been censured by the Ohio Republican Central Committee for working to defeat President Donald Trump and ensure Joe Biden wins the election.
Borges is the former chairman of the Ohio Republican Party. However, he has been running the Right Side PAC to support Biden, The Plain Dealer reported. The party said they took the action as well due to an FEC violation and Borges’ continued criticism of Trump. They also stripped his “chairman emeritus” status.
Borges led the party during the tenure of Gov. John Kasich, a Never-Trumper.
After Trump gained the Republican nomination, Borges came to odds with the campaign weeks before the November election.
Borges’ PAC seeks to sway Republicans to vote for Biden.
“Frustration caused by the many failures of the Trump presidency has created a growing number of disaffected Republican voters. This has been exacerbated by the failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic and fanning the flames of hatred in our country.”
In every neighborhood of every town, in every congressional district in all the must-win states, is a former Trump-supporting GOP voter who knows now that the time has come to take bold action.
Republicans who want to do the right thing will need to be communicated with on a personal level as to why Joe Biden is the man who can mend America’s soul. In the minds of Republican voters, we must make him more than simply the “lesser of two evils.”
The time has come to be on the right side of history.
Right Side is targeting voters in the battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, North Carolina and Florida, according to a story by Axios.
After Trump won, he helped move Borges out of the state party.
