CHICAGO – The home of one of the Midwest's most anti-Trump cities is also home to Donald Trump's 2020 campaign finance chairman, the Republican National Committee announced Friday.

He also happens to be a co-owner of the Chicago Cubs.

An interesting development in a state whose most vocal state GOP leadership despises the president.

From the Republican National Committee: 
 
The Republican National Committee (RNC) and Donald J. Trump for President campaign announced today that Todd Ricketts will join the Trump Victory Committee, a joint fundraising committee between the RNC and the Donald J. Trump for President campaign, as its finance chairman.
 
Ricketts has served as RNC finance chairman since January 2018, spearheading the committee’s record-breaking fundraising work for the midterm cycle. He played a critical role in fundraising for President Trump ahead of the 2016 election.
 
"Todd has been a friend and successful advocate for our Party and I look forward to his strong leadership on the Trump Victory Committee over the next two years," said President Trump.
 
"The RNC is grateful for Todd’s leadership and thrilled that he will play an important role in President Trump’s re-election in 2020," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
 
"Todd’s contributions play a critical part in advancing the America First agenda," said Donald J. Trump for President Campaign Manager Brad Parscale. "Todd was a huge help to President Trump in 2016 and we look forward to his finance leadership ahead of 2020."
 
"I am honored to continue to support President Trump and the Republican Party through the Trump Victory Committee," said Ricketts. "As we head toward 2020, I will work to ensure President Trump and his campaign have the resources they need to fight for the American people."

  1. I know nothing of the Chicago Cubs – except they are a sports team but does this mean we can finally see Trump pack a stadium or park or arena or whatever the spots team uses to play their game in with a keep-America-great again rally? That would be awesome.

  2. And in other Ricketts news, Tom Ricketts donated $25,000 to mayoral campaign of William Daley. Sister Laura Ricketts announced support of Mendoza for mayor. No difference, both creatures of the Madigan-Burke Shakedown Mafia.
