The Hill: Brad Dayspring, a top aide to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, is leaving and will join a super PAC that raises money for House Republicans. Dayspring announced his departure to staff on Friday, The Hill confirmed on Saturday.
With his departure, Cantor’s office loses an outspoken voice who used social media to hawk the House Republican agenda and aggressively defend his boss’ issues.
“We would like to announce that our deputy chief of staff Brad Dayspring has resigned to pursue other opportunities,” said Steve Stombres, Cantor’s chief of staff, in a statement.
“Brad will be missed and we wish Brad all the best luck in his future endeavors,” he said.
“He was a valued employee and did an outstanding job defining and defending our Republican majority.”
Dayspring was recently promoted to deputy chief of staff for the House’s No. 2 Republican where he moved away from daily dealings with the Capitol Hill press corps and more into the role of legislative strategist for Cantor.
