Counselor To The President Ed Gillespie On Larry Craig

Email Email Print

I interviewed Ed Gillespie earlier today, and the transcript is posted here.  Here is our exchange on Senator Larry Craig’s attempt to unannounce his resignation:

HH: A couple of final political questions. Do you think Senator Craig should resign? 

EG: Well, Senator Craig said he intended to resign, and somewhere here at the White House asked to respond to that announcement said that they believe it was the right decision for himself and his family, and for the people of Idaho, and for the United States Senate, and you know, continue to believe that today. 

HH: Have you or anyone on the senior staff been in touch with the Senator or his staff about his next plans? 

EG: No, not that I’m aware of. I have not talked to the Senator or his staff, even before he announced his intent to resign.

HH: When that first White House statement came out, had that been cleared with the President? 

EG: The statement that was given by his spokesman? 

HH: Right. 

EG: I don’t know that he cleared it. I know I cleared it, and felt like it reflected the point of view of the White House.
