Nebraska RNC Official Joyce Simmons Resigns in Protest of Roy Moore Support

Joyce Simmons, a Nebraska Republican National Committeewoman, resigned Monday in protest of the committee’s financial support for U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. Simmons said in a letter, “I strongly disagree with the recent RNC financial support directed to the Alabama Republican Party for use in the Roy Moore race. There is much I could say about this situation, but I will defer to this weekend’s comments by Senator Shelby.” She wrote, “I will miss so many of you that I knew well; and wish I could have continued my service to the national Republican Party that I used to know well.” Richard Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator, told CNN that his state “deserves better” than Moore.
