Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci will be openly campaigning against President Donald Trump.
“I can no longer in good conscience support the president’s reelection,” Scaramucci, also known as “The Mooch,” wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published online Monday night.
Now he’s going even further. Republican strategist Mike Murphy tweeted Tuesday that Scaramucci is “launching and funding a new SuperPAC to run ads against Trump.”
The announcement apparently came on Murphy’s podcast with David Axelrod.
“I can take five points off him,” Scaramucci said.

Donald Trump calls Beto O’Rourke ‘dummy’ over assault-weapon buyback proposal
In a tweet Wednesday morning, the president said presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke is making it harder to make a deal regarding gun control.
President Donald Trump added Beto O'Rourke to his list of nicknamed politicians, referring to the Democratic presidential candidate as "Dummy Beto" in a tweet on Wednesday morning.
Dummy Beto made it much harder to make a deal. Convinced many that Dems just want to take your guns away. Will continue forward! https://t.co/87jvaYUkyn
Lily Adams helped her grandmother Ann Richards win Texas. Can she get Kamala Harris to the White House?
As a young child, Adams was frequently at her governor grandmother's side. Now she's continuing her family's political legacy.
It’s possible that Lily Adams’ political baptism at a Baylor University homecoming parade is what most prepared the Democratic operative for the tone of the Trump era.
Dressed in a red, white and blue dress, she tried in earnest to charm the crowds from a ’57 Ford pickup truck. One angry parade-goer remained less than delighted and wanted her to know it. He marched up to her makeshift float, got in her face and gave her the middle finger.
Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond
In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.
As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
