Why Hopkinton Selectman Brian Herr Left The GOPPlay
Last week, as the Trump administration's decision to separate children from their asylum-seeking parents was stoking nationwide controversy, Republican strategist Steve Schmidt took a stand, tweeting: "Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party."
Schmidt is not some mid-level, loosely affiliated Republican. He ran John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.
And closer to home, another GOP stalwart has left the party: Brian Herr. He's a four-term Hopkinton selectman, a 25-year member of the Republican Party and the GOP's candidate for Senate in 2014.
He then went to the Hopkinton Town Hall and changed his registration to unenrolled.
Brian Herr, selectman from Hopkinton. He tweets @HerrForSenate.
