“Watch out for Dan Merica center right,” one press staffer warned in an email sent during an event in Las Vegas in February.
“Dan Merica stage left,” a press team member wrote minutes later.
Campaign staffer Sarah Hamilton also had eyes on a French journalist.
“French journos and dan merica heading to stage right,” she wrote.

“Dan America [sic] is on backstage bleachers,” one staffer wrote, according to The Smoking Gun.
“I’m with dan America [sic] on back stage bleachers,” the staffer added in an update.
