Cobb has been working as consultant for Trump. (I wish you could see my face as I type those words, because it's a face of pain and suffering.)
Oh wait, it looks something like this:
Cobb once worked as an aide for Bob Dole. (Dole once criticized Trump, but then seemed to come around when it looked like Sen. Ted Cruz might get the nomination. I am still scratching my head as to why there seems to be a reporter stationed at Bob Dole's door at all times. Give the guy a rest already.)
Cobb also served as the state director for Americans for Prosperity. He's also lobbied for Koch Industries. Easy there, libs. It's OK to work for the Kochs.
I am still debating whether it's acceptable to work for Trump.
If tapped for the role, Cobb would replace Rick Wiley. I can't tell you anything about Wiley or the other folks rumored to be in consideration for the job -- Ken McKay or Ed Brookover.
Cobb's a nice enough guy, perhaps too nice to work for Trump. I don't know him well enough to know whether he would consider it selling a piece of his soul to work for Trump, but I can say without certainty, my conscience won't even allow me to vote for the guy. I think Cobb should take a hard pass.
