In the current Massachusetts U.S. Senate race to unseat Elizabeth Warren, local Republican Geoff Diehl has been claiming he was the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts effort to elect Donald J. Trump.
There's just one problem: Diehl was NOT the Co-Chairman of the Massachusetts effort to elect Donald Trump, a fact confirmed for me by Vincent DeVito, who chaired that campaign.
Massachusetts GOP mega-donor Lloyd Thompson has urged Diehl to drop out of the race, stating that he’s made a number of untrue claims.
I reached out to various Massachusetts operatives and Trump volunteers who told me Diehl during the Trump campaign did "nothing."
Diehl himself, and his staff, declined to respond for comment on this story.
The race to unseat Elizabeth Warren is going to be a costly, uphill battle for any Republican candidate. Trump’s nickname for Warren, "Pocahontas,” refers to her own claims to be of American Indian descent.
For a candidate running against her, truthfulness and credibility will be an extremely important factor.
