After leaving his position as Rick Perry's Iowa chairman, Clovis receives some payback.
“(Trump) left me with questions about his moral center and his foundational beliefs. ... His comments reveal no foundation in Christ, which is a big deal,” evangelical conservative activist Sam Clovis said in an email just 35 days before he quit his job as Republican Rick Perry’s Iowa chairman and signed on with Trump’s campaign.
In the emails, shared by Perry backers Wednesday with The Des Moines Register, Clovis castigated Trump for his past liberal positions and admission that he has never asked for God’s forgiveness for any wrongdoing.
But after sitting down with Trump and looking him in the eye, everything's just hunky-dory with 'Grandpa' now.
I'm sure that Trump's average Iowa poll numbers of 19.3% versus Perry's 1.3% had nothing to do with Clovis's decision.
