RNC Says 40 Million Voters Reached Ahead of Midterms As Party Banks Major Cash

As the November midterms come closer into view, the Republican National Committee has managed to make contact with 40 million voters and accumulate a war chest of of $40 million.

In addition, according to a Fox News exclusive, RNC officials are saying that Republican enthusiasm is “higher than ever” and they are committed to winning back majorities in the House and Senate.

One party official said that the RNC’s “significant milestone” regarding voter  contacts is “14 million more than at this same point in 2018.”

The official went on to say that Iowa became the 13th state to surpass 1 million voter contacts followed by Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, California, New Jersey, and Texas have “well over” 2 million contacts apiece.

“As for financials, the RNC raised $14.5 million last month — with officials calling that the party’s ‘best midterm June on record,'” Fox News reported, adding: “In Q2, the RNC reported $41.8 million.”

Currently, the party has around $37.4 million in cash on hand and absolutely no debt, Fox News noted.

“The RNC’s permanent, data-driven ground game has allowed us to contact tens of millions of Americans heading into November,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement to the outlet. “Our strong momentum and grassroots enthusiasm is higher than ever, but Republicans are not taking anything for granted – we are out-investing and out-organizing Democrats every day.”

She went on to say that the GOP is “working day in and day out to hold Biden accountable and turn out every single vote to win back our majorities this November.”

At the same time, RNC officials told the outlet that the party’s “major multi-million investment” in its “permanent data-driven ground game operation” is now “firing on all cylinders.”

The party has also hired more than 700 field staff and has a grassroots volunteer ‘army’ of 550,000.

Fox News adds:

The RNC also has more than 30 community centers to promote minority engagement this cycle. The party already made a multi-million dollar commitment to continue its organizing efforts in Asian-Pacific American, Black, and Hispanic communities in key states across the country. 

The RNC opened its community centers “earlier than ever” to ensure Republicans “continue to make inroads with minority voters to help us achieve our goal of taking back the House and Senate in 2022.” 

With 100 days until Americans hit the polls, the Party is also ramping up its strategic initiatives, with officials saying its “data operation is the backbone and foundation of our field program, influencing the strategy behind who we target.” 

“This enables us to be more efficient with our time and resources as we know who to target with the right message at the right time,” an official told Fox News.

Over the course of several voting cycles, the RNC invested more than $350 million to build “state-of-the-art data and technology,” the official said, adding that information is then shared with GOP candidates up and down the ballot “free of charge” via the RNC’s ties to state parties. The official noted further that gives Republicans a “huge advantage over the Democrats.”

The RNC has also made unprecedented investments in getting voters registered in several battleground states that has led to “significant voter registration gains” in states like Florida — which has more GOP voters registered now than Democrats for the first time in the state’s history — Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, New Jersey, and New Hampshire.

Demographically, Hispanic voters are “one of the fastest growing … groups for Republicans in the nation,” the source added, referencing big gains in Southern Florida and the Rio-Grande Valley in Texas, according to Fox News.

“Republicans from Cleveland to Miami are firing on all cylinders to take back the House and Senate,” RNC spokesperson Emma Vaughn told the outlet.
