President Trump stumped for GOP congressional candidates at a breakneck pace in the closing weeks of the midterms, crisscrossing the country to energize voters at his trademark ‘MAGA’ rallies.
But aside from lending a hand to Republicans in tight Senate races, those raucous rallies have served another purpose.
Beneath the roar of the crowd and boisterous chants of “Build that wall,” a sophisticated operation by the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee was quietly building a voter database yet unseen on the political stage – one that will boost the party going into 2020.
“The RNC’s data combined with the President’s unique ability to energize voters and boost turnout has been an undeniable force in helping get candidates in tight races across the finish line,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said.
Former Trump campaign strategist Michael Caputo, however, claims that Democrats won’t be able to keep up with the president’s operation.
