President-Elect Trump's top ally in Ohio is leading the effort to unseat Ohio Republican Party chair Matt Borges.

Ohio Public Radio's Andy Chow reports.

The rift between Borges and the Trump campaign was well-known. At times he wavered in his support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. That includes when a leaked video caught Trump talking about his ability to sexually assault women if he wanted to.

 

Now Trump’s Ohio campaign director Bob Paduchik is doing what he can to help Stark County GOP vice-chair Jane Timken unseat Borges

 

Paduchik: “It’s important to have leadership that brings the committee together. That’s able to work with the county chairs.”

 

Borges has been state party chair for three years. Less than a month before the election, the Trump campaign broke ties with Borges citing what they believed to be a lack of support.
