Getting Off of a Sinking Ship

With the state of the Republican Caucus, especially on the Assembly side, it’s no wonder that a wisely run political consulting firm, like Meridian Pacific, would bail on their GOP Assembly Caucus account. Matt Rexroad’s rationale published in the Capitol Morning Report this morning was brilliant - reasoning that having to work closely with individual candidates "prevented us from doing some of the independent expenditure work that we wanted to do." Translation: "you’re a lost cause, there’s no helping you."

Now is this a rat jumping a sinking ship or management realizing that under Meridian Pacific little progress has been made towards gaining a majority?
