Trump Reelection Campaign Now 50% Larger Than 2016 Campaign
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is going into overdrive this year.
After achieving record fundraising hauls, the campaign is mobilizing volunteers, registering voters, and expanding their staff by historic amounts.
As reported by Fox News:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Monday that it and President Trump’s reelection campaign are hiring 300 additional staffers – which officials say will bring the combined resources of the Trump Victory field staff to 1,500 by Wednesday.
The RNC touts that the Trump Victory field operation is 50 percent bigger than what it sported four years ago in the 2016 election. And it highlights that its 1,500-strong field staff is more than double the 600 that presumptive Democratic presidential Joe Biden’s campaign said they’d have in place by the end of June in the key general election battleground states. The mission of campaign field staffers is to turn out voters for their candidate and their party.
Field staffers alone don’t win elections. Four years ago Trump and the RNC had a smaller staff size than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). But in a close contest, they can have an impact on the election results.
According to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, the Trump campaign has activated over a million volunteers, and has registered more voters in recent months than the entire 2016 election cycle. This has all been enabled by the Trump campaign’s massive war chest that totaled $295 million by the end of June.
