LaNasa calls out GOP leaders, quits party after election loss

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A day after losing to incumbent Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo, Justin LaNasa is calling out another political leader.

In an e-mail this afternoon thanking supporters for their help on his campaign, LaNasa said he will leave "the Republican Party due to its lack of leadership, efforts and knowledge." LaNasa encouraged his supporters to follow his lead.

"I feel our New Hanover County GOP chair Rhonda Amoroso and select few executive committee are not working for the benefit of the Republican Party and I will give a few examples," LaNasa's e-mail continued. "I feel the low voter turn out was due to lack of GOP involvement."

LaNasa cited the party's lack of financial support for Republican candidates in the non-partisan city elections. He also suggested the leadership could have pushed a media campaign to oppose incumbents, which he believes would have worked.

"I didn't here (sic) or see much work or help at early voting or even during Election Day from the GOP. What really is a big disappointment the current GOP chair Rhonda Amoroso allows Republican In Name Only to hold executive positions and allow candidates to run on Republican tickets," LaNasa wrote.

Amoroso has not yet returned our call and e-mail asking for comment.
