The RNC is reportedly bleeding Hispanic talent as prospective hires get more and more uncomfortable with the idea of working to elect Donald Trump.

Last week the RNC's Hispanic media director left to work on down ballot races because of her reportedly "increasingly awkward position defending the party and Trump." Then when Mario Lopez, the president of the Hispanic Leadership Fund, was allegedly approached about filling the role, sources told BuzzFeed he didn't see the position as a good fit. The eventual successor, Helen Aguirre-Ferre, is perhaps reluctant as well — as she has spent months criticizing Trump for his comments about Latinos.
