Dozens of former Obama staffers running for office to oppose Trump

 

 

Little bomblets being planted into our government. 28 alone running for Congress. As if we haven’t endured enough. They never rest:

Dozens of former Obama administration officials are running for office this year, largely in opposition to President Trump and his policies, NBC News reported Sunday.

At least 64 former Obama staffers are running for federal, state or local office this year, according to the network, which cited numbers obtained from the Obama Alumni Association.

The group said it expects that number to rise as more Obama alums contact it about their bids. Some states also have yet to hold primaries, giving more former staffers the chance to announce campaigns.

At least 28 of those Obama officials are running for the House of Representatives, according to NBC News, which said five have won their primaries so far and one has lost.

Many of the candidates told the network that Trump and his administration motivated them to run for office.
