RNC Chair on push to turn Indiana Senate seat red
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Republican National Committee continues to prepare for the midterm elections on Tuesday, as volunteers continue knocking on doors, raising money, and getting out the vote.
The RNC will allocate $10 million for get-out-the-vote efforts in the lead up to the midterm elections, with 30 percent of that money dedicated to peer-to-peer texting. Peer-to-peer texting is often used by campaigns to solicit donations and to get out the vote.
According to the RNC, Republicans have recently increased their election cycle budget from $250 million to a total of $275 million.
“We’re increasing our midterm commitment thanks to the support from President Trump and millions of energized Americans who want to ensure Republican majorities can continue to deliver results. Our investment is unprecedented because we know we must do everything in our power to defy history,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
As the Indiana Senate race is poised to be very competitive, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) will be in Mishawaka on Thursday to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun.
