Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., called on a local GOP official to resign after calling the congressmanâ€™s primary opponent a â€œstreet walkerâ€ in an email.
Montgomery County GOP Chairman Joe Allen made several disparaging comments about former Miss America Erika Harold, who recently announced a primary challenge to Davis, in an email. Allen used explicit and racially charged language to describe Harold in an email published by a conservative blog in its entirety.â€œI am calling on him to resign,â€ Davis told reporters in a Thursday conference call. â€œAs a party, we should be focused on working together even if we have disagreements.â€
He went on to call Allenâ€™s email â€œwrong,â€ â€œincredibly demeaningâ€ and â€œdumb.â€ He repeatedly described Allenâ€™s email as an unwelcome distraction from his work on the farm bill. (Illinoisâ€™ 13th is a downstate district that includes some rural areas.)
On a national level, the attacks on Harold come as the Republican Party is looking for ways to appeal to minorities and women.
