The Hillary Clinton campaign has not hired any paid ground staffers in the state of Florida.
Breitbart News has learned that the Clinton camp has not paid a single non-fundraising staffer yet in Florida, even as Republican campaigns kick off their ground war in the Sunshine State.
“They haven’t been engaged whatsoever,” senior Rick Scott adviser Arlene DiBenigo tells Breitbart News. “In no part of the state has she hired any staff on the ground for grassroots outreach.”
When Clinton comes to Florida, she fundraises in the part of the state with Hispanic donors in Miami, including some Cuban-American families who left the city’s prominent Republican party. But the north of Florida and central Florida is up for grabs.
Not surprisingly, that’s exactly where Republicans are focusing their efforts right now.
Reince Preibus’ plan to deploy 300 Republican National Committee workers on the ground is underway. In fact, 200 of them are already deployed and spending money on voter-mobilization technology like the kind that Obama used to defeat Romney in Florida in 2012. The operation will grow larger as ground workers train new workers.
As Breitbart News reported, the Democratic National Committee is fiscally insolvent going into the campaign, and falling behind in chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s home state.
The Clinton campaign did not return a request for comment for this report.
