RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina Republican Party’s new communications director doesn’t believe social media comments critical of Donald Trump and targeting a Gov. Pat McCrory veto will diminish her ability to help work for their election.
Kami Mueller on Wednesday didn’t deny messages cited by the state Democratic Party were hers. They included harsh tweets about Trump in March and a Facebook post last year reading “Goodbye, re-election” after learning McCrory would veto a bill letting magistrates decline to officiate gay marriages.
Mueller said the beauty of the political process is that she or McCrory can express their views even when they’re on the same team. She says Trump has answered many of her previous concerns about him.
Mueller has worked for the North Carolina Values Coalition and Lt. Gov. Dan Forest.
