Local Republic Party Chair Says No Comment on Debate, White Supremacy, Transition of Power, T-S reports


Local Democratic party officials voiced concerns about the state of the nation and what they see as President Donald Trump’s role in stoking division following Tuesday’s now notorious debate between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the Times-Standard reports.

The Republic party chair declined to comment for the story, including when asked whether the local chapter condemned white supremacy and supported a peaceful transition of power, the article states.

Trump faced backlash, including from members of his own party, for not condemning the far-right hate group Proud Boys during the debate and saying they should “stand back and stand by.”

Meanwhile, the Commission on Presidential Debates released a statement on Wednesday stating that the “debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”
