Big time donor and one of the folks who has been trying to raise money from others for Donald Trump, a supporter and a fan of Donald and his campaign, Gary Emineth has just resigned in protest after the RNC railroading over the petition for a roll call vote on the rules package.
Emineth, you may recall, was the one potential Donald Trump delegate from the state of North Dakota, back when Ted Cruz successfully froze out the rest of the state. After Trump locked down the nomination, Emineth was one of the major players pushing to get big donors to line up behind Trump and open up their pockets. Back less than a month ago, Emineth said this:
“It’s time for Republicans to unite behind our next president,” Gary Emineth, former North Dakota GOP Chairman, told reporters.”
Now, though, Emineth finds the campaign, and the RNC, have gone too far.

The problem here is not only the miscarriage, but the fact that the rules change proposals were not merely from anti-Trump voters. They were changes proposed by those who were attempting to make changes to the way things operate so they do not favor the establishment or Democrat and independent voters.
But the RNC and the Trump campaign spent all day in a huge effort to quash all opposition, ultimately successful in the spectacle we all saw earlier this afternoon. People are not happy about it, and now the fallout includes people who are decidedly pro-Trump.
