Following my previous post, where a Tea Party rally, expected to draw around 2,000 people only drew 30 after Donald Trump cancelled, we now have another case where Trump’s cancellation is causing the GOP some problems:
Donald Trump on Thursday backed out of a June speaking engagement at one of the Iowa Republican Party’s premier annual fundraisers, prompting state GOP officials to scrub what was expected to be the state party’s largest ever.
Trump was scheduled to headline the annual Lincoln Dinner on June 10 in Des Moines.
More than 1,500 tickets had been sold for the event, which was moved from its original location to a more spacious downtown auditorium when it was announced that Trump had accepted the invitation from Iowa Republican Chairman Matt Strawn in March.
So many of the beltway’s insiders, as well as right wing bloggers and journalists, tried to write-off Trump as not being a real candidate, yet his cancellation at events is causing some serious financial problems for the GOP. I really think the left should thank the Don for all he has done.
