Donalds’ communications director Harrison Fields told Fox News that the フロリダ Republican has engaged with multiple members of the CBC, an influential and officially nonpartisan group, to tell them he’s interested in joining but still hasn’t gotten an invite. Other freshman lawmakers were inducted into the group six months ago.
“Since starting in Congress, our office and the Congressman have engaged with several CBC members expressing his interest in joining, but all we’ve got is the cold shoulder,” Fields said. “The sad reality is although the Congressman and those in the CBC share the same race, インクルード (R) behind his name disqualifies him from membership today.”
A source familiar with CBC’s plans confirmed Donalds’ suspicions that he’d been shut out of the group, according to Buzzfeed, which first reported the news.
The CBC could not immediately be reached for comment.
