GOP Establishment Backs Trump

My, how quickly things change. The New York Times is reporting that the RNC is telling employees to get behind Trump or find another job. TPM follows up:

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Republican National Committee staffers were told that if they could not embrace Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee they would need to leave by the end of this week.

Here's the unsourced Times report:

Some staff members at the Republican National Committee were told Wednesday that if they were unable to get behind the nominee, they should leave by the end of the week.

The RNC denied the Times' report on Thursday morning.

"That is 100% false," RNC spokeswoman Lindsay Walters wrote in an email to TPM when asked about the Times article.

Despite Priebus' denial, AAN has heard non confirmed chatter along the same lines from well placed sources in the conservative movement. We will update this story if any more information becomes available.
