As President Trump’s chances of winning Pennsylvania appeared to slip away after the strategy of leveraging the courts failed to work out, the president’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has tested positive for COVID-19, putting him out of action at the worst possible time.

Bloomberg and a handful of media outlets broke the news, citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter.

Despite having only just recovered from the sometimes deadly virus, President Trump embarked on an intense schedule of 4 or sometimes even more rallies, meetings, interviews and events. Though Meadows is technically West Wing staff chief, and isn’t really involved with the campaign, the overlap between campaign and West Wing personnel can be substantiial.

Per BBG, Meadows has remained “involved” with the campaign via the effort to challenge vote totals in certain states.

Also, at least four other White House officials have been infected recently, including Cassidy Hutchinson, one of Meadows’s closest aides. Senior Trump campaign aide Nick Trainer is also presently infected, according to Bloomberg’s sources.
