Expect more conservative-leaning groups to work toward defeating President Donald Trump

The Lincoln Project, co-founded by Republican lawyer George Conway and other GOP campaign veterans, has already spent $2 million on ads aimed at electing Joe Biden over Trump, and GOP strategists expect more groups to emerge after the Republican National Convention, reported NBC News.

“Nothing was going to get me to vote for Hillary Clinton,” said Matt Borges, the former chair of Ohio’s Republican Party who feuded with Trump in 2016 but voted for him anyway. “I grew up in this business learning to fight against everything the Clintons were for. I knew her, and in my mind, I knew what a Clinton presidency was going to be like.”

This year, Borges helped set up Right Side PAC to identify and reach persuadable Republican voters through mail, phone and online.

“A lot of folks are like me,” he said. “They understand that Joe Biden isn’t the same kind of candidate.”

Republican Voters Against Trump expects to have a $10 million budget to target college-educated Republicans in swing states and working-class women with online videos showing regretful Trump voters.

“If you were for Trump last time and you write in Ronald Reagan this time, that is plus one for Joe Biden,” said Tim Miller, a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee who co-founded the group with conservative commentator Bill Kristol.

Trump campaign dispatches Pence to shore up Mormon support — after harsh criticism from Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake: report

Published

on

The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.

"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."

Published

Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.

"After a spring and summer bolstered by cash infusions from the federal government of more than $3 trillion, the U.S. economy may have to sink or swim this fall with a relative trickle of support — presenting a significant threat to President Donald Trump’s standing as he heads into a compressed reelection campaign already trailing in the polls," Politico's Ben White reported.
