You won’t believe who’s targeting Donald Trump voters now

“A lot of these (Trump) voters were not Republicans and the whole goal is to convert them to Republicans and get them engaged as Republicans,” say Palm Beach County GOP State Committeeman Joe Budd, shown here in 2016. (George Bennett/The Palm Beach Post)

Even after Donald Trump beat two Florida favorite sons to win the state’s Republican presidential primary, then captured the GOP nomination and the White House itself, the president and his supporters are seen as an exotic species by many in the Republican Party.

The Palm Beach County GOP has appointed a “Trump outreach coalition chair” and the Republican Party of Florida has encouraged the formation of local “Trump Republican Clubs” around the state to try to persuade Trump supporters to turn out for GOP candidates in 2018 when Trump himself isn’t on the ballot.

“A lot of these (Trump) voters were not Republicans and the whole goal is to convert them to Republicans and get them engaged as Republicans,” explains Joe Budd, an early Trump supporter who’s now the Republican state committeeman for Palm Beach County.
