Chair Clarifies McMullin Comments

The following statement was submitted as a press release today to CacheValleyDaily.com:

“After reading the article released by the Cache Valley Daily on Friday, and discussing it with several colleagues and friends, I felt as though I needed to issue a follow-up statement. While my intent was to express that Republicans who are trying to help Hillary Clinton win should not be in the party, I realize that in my frustration and in the context of the rest of the story it seemed directed at all people who cast a vote for Evan McMullin. I apologize for the overly broad criticism and want to assure all Republicans of their importance to the party and look ahead to achieving our larger purposes after this tough election season is over.”
