POLITICO‘s Alex Isenstadt told CNN on Wednesday that the Pennsylvania Republican Party was “in chaos,” forcing President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign to send staff in hopes of saving the crucial battleground state, which Trump won by one percentage point in 2016, and where the GOP utterly collapsed in the midterms.
“The Trump campaign understands just how important Pennsylvania is to getting the president re-elected in 2020,” Isenstadt said. “But it also signifies an acknowledgement of a level of concern on the part of the White House about how things stand in Pennsylvania for them.”
“Republicans lost a lot of seats in Pennsylvania in the midterms, and there’s also a lot of chaos in the Pennsylvania state Republican Party,” he went on. “So what you have is a situation today where Trump aides are being dispatched from Washington to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to talk things over with Pennsylvania Republicans who are on the ground in the state.”
The chaos in the state party had been going on “for months,” Isenstadt said. “There’s been problems with fundraising, there’s been problems with overall organization, and all of this stuff really matters as you’re getting ready for a presidential campaign.”

Pelosi’s war on progressives risks another Trump victory
There are three reasons Trump won, and some of the leading Democrats don't seem to understand any of them
If Trump wins in 2020—and right now, he stands a good chance of doing it—you can thank Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the neoliberals in charge of the Democratic Party.
At the moment she and her allies are waging a war against progressives in order to hold onto a mythical centrist majority that doesn't exist. This threatens to repeat the mistakes of 2016, while ignoring the lessons of 2018.
Trump bellows about ‘fake polls’ after he falls behind Democrats in survey after survey
A new NBC poll released on Sunday is the latest to suggest danger for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, suggesting that he would trail in a hypothetical matchup with several of the top Democratic contenders, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
