Kellyanne Conway announced Sunday night she's stepping down from her position as counselor to President Trump "Gratefully & Humbly" to spend more time with her family at the end of the month.
The big picture: Conway's resignation, which she stressed was "completely my choice," comes ahead of this week's Republican National Convention, where Trump is set to formally accept his party's nomination to run for a second term. Conway is due to speak at the convention on Wednesday.
Of note: Her attorney husband and vocal Trump critic George Conway tweeted he would be withdrawing from the anti-Trump Republican group the Lincoln Project and announcing he'd be taking a Twitter hiatus "to devote more time to family matters."
- "Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission," he added. Passionately."
