Cantor Aide Brad Dayspring Departs For House GOP Super PAC

Top Eric Cantor aide Brad Dayspring confirmed on Twitter that he’s leaving the Majority Leader’s office to work for a Super PAC aimed at boosting House Republicans.

Dayspring, whose unexpected departure was first reported by Politico, declared as “accurate” a National Journal article by Reid Wilson that revealed his next move.

He will leave to join a super PAC aimed at raising and spending money for House Republican candidates, National Journal has learned. …

“It is with great enthusiasm that we’re adding Brad Dayspring as a senior adviser to our team,” said John Murray, Cantor’s former communications director who now runs the super PAC. “When Young Guns was formed it was designed to help leaders like Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy chart a new course for the center-right movement and the House majority. Brad’s years of work both on capitol hill and in the campaign world are a perfect blend to help take us to the next level.”

Cantor’s office emailed TPM this statement from chief of staff Steve Stombres:

“We would like to announce that our Deputy Chief of Staff Brad Dayspring has resigned to pursue other opportunities. Brad will be missed and we wish Brad all the best luck in his future endeavors.  He was a valued employee and did an outstanding job defining and defending our Republican Majority.”
