Key Point from the NY Times: According to the Kasich adviser (who spoke only under the condition that he not be named), Donald Jr. wanted to make him an offer nonetheless: Did he have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?
When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.
Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?
“Making America great again” was the casual reply.
CT Dems’ Response: “Connecticut Republicans just voted for Mike Pence – the governor who signed an anti-LGBT right-to-discriminate law, tried to ban Syrian refugees from entering his state, and claimed that ‘smoking doesn’t kill’ – to run our country. Pence is at least as extreme as Donald Trump, and we simply cannot afford to make him our de facto commander-in-chief. Shame on Connecticut Republicans for supporting his nomination.” – Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Michael Mandell
