GOP director quits after 2 months
The political director for the Republican Party of New Mexico quit his post this week after only two months on the job, but not before taking some parting shots at his former employers.
Sergio Garcia wrote in his resignation letter, turned in Tuesday night, that “destructive forces” within the state GOP had undermined his credibility and stifled his opinions.
“I have come to the realization that the current environment is no longer conducive for moving forward with any strategic plan of positioning the party for the future. I can no longer justify earning a paycheck from our donors for leading a party that in truth will always be a two man — and at times — three-man show,” Garcia wrote.
State GOP spokeswoman Janel Causey said the resignation “came out of left field” and that Garcia had not discussed any of the allegations in the letter around the office.
Causey said Garcia had been working since June 15 and had been mainly assigned fundraising duties.
Causey said Garcia was being groomed to take over the party’s executive director position in January and that he had not voiced conflicting opinions on GOP strategy in meetings with the executive director, chairman and Causey.
Garcia worked on both Bush-Cheney campaigns.
