Axios morning email reports that the rats are already fleeing his sinking yacht:
Vivek Ramaswamy staffers have begun looking for work elsewhere. He didn’t qualify for tomorrow’s final televised debate before the Iowa caucuses. And he won’t even be on the ballot for the Illinois GOP primary.
[…] ? What we’re hearing: GOP officials tell Axios they’ve received job inquiries from multiple Ramaswamy campaign staffers since early November.
- One offered to start work Feb. 1 — after the Iowa and New Hampshire contests, but before Super Tuesday on March 5, when 16 states hold Republican contests.
And of course Axios contacted Team Ramaswamy to get a response:
Ramaswamy’s campaign disputes that he faces a reckoning.
- “The energy we’re seeing on the ground in Iowa is electric,” communications director Tricia McLaughlin told Axios. “The mainstream media may be quick to write our obituary, but that’s because they’re oblivious to the facts on the ground.”
But the vultures are already circling the corpse, especially one too fat to fly:
- “He will, I am sure, Endorse me. But Vivek is a good man, and is not done yet!” Trump posted on TruthSocial.
