Report: Top Cantor Aide Brad Dayspring Quits

Brad Dayspring, a top aide to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), unexpectedly resigned on Friday, according to Politico.

Jake Sherman, Jonathan Allen and Anna Palmer report:

It’s a surprising departure. Dayspring was one of Cantor’s most trusted aides, and an outsized presence in a House Republican Conference full of personalities.

“Brad has decided to move on,” Cantor Chief of Staff Steve Stombres told POLITICO. “He has been a valuable member of our team and I wish him nothing but the best.”

Dayspring, who has led Cantor’s communications operation and was recently promoted to deputy chief of staff, did not immediately return a request for comment.
