Republican Party leaders in key 2018 elections do not buy into the claims President Donald Trump and/or people close to him colluded with Russia.

The results of a Politico survey of more than two dozen GOP leaders at the local level in counties that are expected to see tight 2018 races show they are not fazed by all the collusion talk.

"It's just all noise to people on the ground here; people on the ground are just concerned about job security," said Carl Bunce, who chairs the GOP in Clark County, Nevada. "It's almost embarrassing for the media from my perspective. Move on. I'm sure they could find something else to report on."

That was a common theme in the Politico survey.

"Democrats and their allies in the media are actually doing the country a disservice with their 'scandal each day' narrative," San Diego County Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric told the website.

Other respondents alluded to the "fake news" media and called the Russia investigation a "witch hunt." Those are terms Trump himself uses on a regular basis.

This week's Russia headlines revolve around Donald Trump Jr., who met with a Russian lawyer last summer after being promised dirt on Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign. Screenshots of the email conversation that set up the meeting showed the Russian government was cheering for Trump to win the election.
