Speaking with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday evening, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said the GOP’s lack of support for the Republican nominee is “unfortunate.”

“We didn’t have the full support of the republican infrastructure,” Conway said.

“It would really be too bad if we win narrowly and it’s not because of the Democrats or this, that, or the other, it’s because we have former presidents not voting for us. Former nominees not voting for us. And that’s got to hurt,” she added.

Conway was likely responding to the news that former President George W. Bush did not vote for Trump. Mitt Romney previously said he would not support the GOP nominee either.  

“When you talk about growing the party, the idea was growing it, but having that base together,” Conway said. “I think that’s unfortunate.”
