Opinion: As a Republican, I'm tired of Trump's division, discord, vitriol and hate

Detroit News

I am a lifelong Republican. And I am exhausted.

Nearly all my career, I have worked for Republican candidates and conservative causes, managing campaigns, organizing coalitions and raising money. In 2010, I helped lead the Michigan Republican Party to its most successful election cycle in history. And for nearly two years, I served as U.S. Department of Education chief of staff in the Trump administration.

But this is 2020, so of course this year is different. I cannot vote for the Republican nominee for president. For the good of the party I have supported my entire life, but more importantly, for the sake of the country I love, I implore all patriotic Republicans to join me.

President Donald Trump thrives on purposely sowing strife and discord, Venable writes.
There is no need to relitigate this presidentís well-known and well-documented transgressions and shortcomings. Nor am I interested in refuting my friendsí hollow attempts to justify their continued support for the president based on the rare policy victory of the day.


Josh Venable serves as an adviser to the Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (RePAIR). He previously was chief of staff for the U.S. Department of Education, deputy finance director for the Republican National Committee, and chief of staff for the Michigan Republican Party.
