Yes, motivating folks to show up has been key to this and all races for republicans since day 1. Which is why the messaging in this race has had me angry from the get go.
The republican messaging is NOT IMHO going to motivate the MAGA voters to show up... the core republicans sure.. but the disenfranchised voters who voted for Trump and gave him PA?? Nope... the messaging has been all wrong...
This advertising and messaging has not been... you put Trump in the white house and now the Democrats want to stop him... You must show up to help Trump and the MAGA agenda by sending Saccone to DC to fight for the MAGA agenda.
No, its all been just traditional old tired Republican messaging that never got these voters to vote R before, let alone show up in a special election. Its been BAD messaging for what is needed from the get go.
Literally you could run every single ad for Saccone that is out there, other than the 1 ad explicitly calling out the tax cut “Crumbs” comment for any election in the last 10-20 years for any republican.
The GOPe just still does not seem to understand what happened in 2016!... I live in the district, if Lamb wins it isn’t because the Republicans didn’t fight... its that they fought a 2010 election in 2018.
Its been disappointing to watch from day one. Motivating voters to show up si what the R’s have to do in a special election or midterm... and simply playing to the traditional republican base is NOT going to do that... This race should not be within 3-6 points if Republicans didn’t have the heads up their arses with their messaging.
President Trump won Pennsylvania because of cross-over votes from working class Democrats. The old school 1950s Republican pol making the rounds of the the country club and the Rotary rubber chicken circuit isn't going to win anything anymore.
Those guys have had all the years since Ronald Reagan to show us what they can do, and they have done nothing. Crony capitalism, unrestrained immigration, and exported jobs and manufacturing is all they ever gave us. Oh, and unrestricted abortion.
Have you thought of calling RNC or other Republican orgs? They seem to need advice. You being local and all, may get through to them. I understand Pres. Trump will visit the District this weekend. Perhaps that will help win this election. We really need to win this thing!
