The chairman of the Senate Republican campaign arm is telling vulnerable colleagues in tough races to stay away from the GOP presidential convention this summer.
Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman, warns that a fight between supporters of candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at a contested convention in Cleveland is the last place vulnerable Republicans need to be.
“If there’s going to be a brouhaha, I’m advising candidates to be present for more unifying events,” Wicker told The Hill.
And he’s far from alone in his opinion.
