Assumption: We want to win the ones that can/did support Obama? Fundamentally, emphatically, no. I don’t want to be on their team. I don’t want them on mine.
No, new conservative Republicans! We must convince the local Repub Party to hold a voter registration at every festival, fair, and community gathering, etc. Most local leadership is old family and they hold a “position” and don’t want to get their hands dirty. We get the youth, working class, and some Independents that want to vote in the local primaries. Give away a few hats, drink cozies, a few shirts with a cool saying about newly registered. Invite strangers to attend local meetings and serve refreshments so there is time to get acquainted.
I proposed this to my Republican Women’s group and they were insulted and I got the cold shoulder, so be aware. The GOPe doesn’t want that riff raff kn the Party!!
