Here we go:
▪ “We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.” — Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado who is leading a campaign to block Donald Trump from becoming the GOP nominee.
The group isn’t organizing behind any one alternative. They just don’t want Trump.
▪ “Ugh or yuck is my response.” — Susan Goldwater Levine, widow of the late Barry Goldwater, responding to the news that Trump would hold a fundraiser in the late Arizona senator's landmark estate in Paradise Valley.
Never miss a local story.
The Goldwater family no longer owns the estate. Levine said Goldwater would be appalled by Trump’s behavior.
▪ “My position is we should make voting available to as many people as we possibly can, and we should make it as easy as we possibly can for people to vote.” — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon.
Nixon, though, isn’t saying whether he’ll sign or veto implementing legislation for voter ID legislation in the event that voters pass a related constitutional amendment in November. His team is still reviewing the measure, and Nixon said he doesn’t want to pre-empt their work with a premature announcement. The guess here: He’ll veto it.
▪ “It’s a pretty epic screw-up.” — Sean Gatewood, representing KanCare Advocates Network, on the news that a contractor under-represented by 12,000 people the number of applications on backlog for Medicaid eligibility.
As a result, the waiting list jumped from 3,500 people on May 8 to 15,400 on May 22.
