Breaking News: Top Cantor Aid Quits
Top Cantor aide quits - A top aide to Majority Leader Eric Cantor resigned Friday.
Brad Dayspring abruptly tells colleagues he is leaving the Virginia Republican’s office.
It’s a surprising departure. Dayspring was one of Cantor’s most trusted aides, and an outsized presence in a House Republican Conference full of personalities.
“[D]eputy Chief of Staff Brad Dayspring has resigned to pursue other opportunities,” said Cantor’s chief of staff, Steve Stombres. “Brad will be missed and we wish Brad all the best luck in his future endeavors. He was a valued employee and did an outstanding job defining and defending our Republican majority.”
The exact events surrounding his decision were not clear, but John Murray, another former Cantor staffer, said Dayspring was joining the Young Guns super PAC.
