RNC Gets Out the Vote in Colorado Recall Election
The Republican National Committee (RNC) is on the ground in Colorado providing support for the pro-recall efforts as voters in senator John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) and Angela Giron's (D-Pueblo) districts head to the polls.
Giron and Morse face recall votes thanks to a public outcry after the two Democrats voted for recently-enacted gun control measures limiting magazine sizes and requiring background checks for private gun sales.
In an effort to offset the advantages Giron has enjoyed via Organizing For Action (OFA) operatives working her office and the advantages both senators have enjoyed from gifts by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others, the RNC is supporting the recall efforts in three ways that are crucial to voter turnout.
RNC staffers are providing equipment, date help, and grassroots field work in School Districts 3 and 11, where they are recruiting and organizing volunteers and working with county parties and the challengers' campaigns to achieve voter contact goals. This includes utilizing both the RNC's walk app as well as VOIP phones and a phone-from-home system.
A strategist familiar with the RNC's activities in Colorado told Breitbart News:
The moment NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg started cutting checks, this recall election became about much more than Colorado. The DNC and President Obama's Super PAC are on the ground, and the only way to ensure that the voices of the people of Colorado aren't overrun from New York and Chicago is to use every available resource to turn out the vote.
