Contact Tracers Waited On Names Of Trump Fundraiser Guests Who Had Already Scattered - 2020-10-02
New Jersey contact tracers did not have a complete list of the names of those who attended a Bedminster fundraiser Thursday with President Donald Trump, just hours before his COVID-19diagnosis, until at least Friday afternoon, 24 hours after the event, HuffPost has learned.
The Republican National Committee sent the names of those it knew had attended to the office of New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) at 2:30 p.m. Friday, a spokesperson for the RNC said.
But asked if the state had a list of everyone who attended — not just donors, but outside vendors and members of the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster staff — a senior aide to Murphy said Friday afternoon that the state was still waiting for the full roster, which it was compiling from information from the RNC, the White House and the golf club.
