DNC Chair Ben Ray Lujan’s Wife: We Won’t VOTE FOR Trump in 2020

Carolyn Monahan, wife of Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M., the new chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, appeared briefly with her husband at a press conference on Monday — but she had a simple message for reporters: If asked, she wouldn’t take the implicit position that she would vote for Trump in 2020, and would instead just say that she wouldn’t be “used as a pawn.”

Her response was a notable departure from her comments last month, when she said she might vote for Trump and “do everything I can to help him get re-elected.”

But her answer was also notably limited. After speaking briefly with reporters at a separate event in Washington, Ms. Monahan said the press conference was primarily a meeting with supporters about how they could help House Democrats in the upcoming elections.

“We’re not going to answer any questions about Donald Trump and in particular whether or not I will vote for him in 2020,” she said, according to a transcript provided by her office. “If they ask me and I say no, they can write that on my Senate or a letter to my Senate. They could write that on our website, but I’m not going to be used as a pawn.”
