  • Brutal New RNC Ad Shows Democrats Questioning Biden’s Fitness (devastating)

    07/11/2020 4:21:11 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 44 replies ^ | Jasyson
    The Republican National Committee (RNC) launched a blistering ad Friday that calls into question Joe Biden’s fitness to lead America over the next four years. A pair of those making comments in the video are prominent Democrats, making it even more stinging. The ad, appropriately titled “Joe Biden: Unfit To Lead,” takes aim at the presumptive Democrat nominee’s penchant for incoherence and features clips of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D) and former senior adviser to Barack Obama, David Axelrod. “There’s a lot of people who are concerned about Joe Biden,” Booker says in between shots of Biden saying “um”...
  • COVID-19 Campaigning: Team Trump, RNC Consider Shift To All-Outdoor Rallies … And Convention?

    A smart choice, if the reports from NBC News and the Washington Post are accurate. Donald Trump has champed at the bit to return to the campaign trail, hoping to reinvigorate his political base and stoke enthusiasm ahead of the November election. That impatience ended up backfiring in Tulsa, where the indoor venue and a clear reluctance of even his fervent backers to risk exposure to COVID-19 led to much smaller crowds than expected.Rather than risk more poor optics, Team Trump has shifted its thinking on venues, NBC reports. Instead of indoor arenas where the risk is highest, they...

    Several attorneys in Jacksonville, Florida, teamed up to file a lawsuit to stop the Republican National Convention from taking place there in August. The lawsuit, filed in Duval County, makes several arguments as to why the city should not host the Republican National Convention as Florida’s coronavirus case numbers rise. The suit said the convention would be “a nuisance injurious to the health [and] welfare” of the community.

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Trump campaign raised $131 million in June, breaking a record that “eclipses the total raised in any single month of 2016,” the RNC announced Wednesday.

The RNC and Trump campaign have now raised a total of $947 million, and have $295 million cash on hand. “After yet another haul of record-breaking support, the voters are speaking loud and clear – they support President Trump,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said...

    A 2015 video in which Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors describes herself and co-founder Alicia Garza as “trained Marxists” is making an appearance in a GOP campaign ad. The Republican National Committee video, “This isn’t about justice, it’s about destroying America,” features scenes of recent rioting, fires and mayhem, but begins with a clip of Ms. Cullors. “We actually do have an ideological frame,” says Ms. Cullors. “We are trained Marxists.” The comment comes from a 2015 interview by Real News Network host Jared Ball with Ms. Cullors, who founded Black Lives Matter with Ms. Garza and Opal Tometi...

    It’s no secret that in our data-driven digital age, running a winning political campaign today looks a lot different than it did 15, 10, or even five years ago. The old political playbook, largely predicated on buying TV ads, is no longer enough – the new political era we are living in requires a different approach. That’s why at the Republican National Committee, we have made it our mission to build a political machine that reflects today’s realities and allows us to connect with voters in new and innovative ways. By far, one of the most important initiatives we support...

    President Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) combined to raise about $74 million in May, a record haul for the month but one that fell behind the total garnered by former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) last month. The May figures were about $12 million more than the money raked in in April and bring the Trump and RNC’s total haul for the cycle to date to over $817 million. The average donation for May amounted to $46, and the two bodies have $265 million cash on hand combined. Biden and the DNC raised...

    EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign posted their largest online fundraising day ever on Sunday, bringing in $14 million across three entities on the president's birthday — smashing their previous online fundraising record of $10 million on Oct. 19, 2016. The surge in cash comes as Republicans' war chest continues to dwarf Democrats' holdings, as it has for the entire primary cycle. Trump and the RNC – which have been building a fundraising juggernaut for more than three years – have roughly $255 million cash on hand, compared with the approximately $100 million the Joe Biden campaign...

    George Stephanopoulos asks Ben Carson whether it's appropriate for President Trump to give his RNC acceptance speech on August 27th in Jacksonville, given that date is the 60th anniversary of "Ax Handle Saturday" in that city, in which KKK members beat a largely black group of civil rights protesters. Carson says that we need to "grow up" and stop being offended by everything. Invited to comment, Stacey Abrams calls Ben Carson's comment "fairly infantile." View the video at the link.

    It isn’t even clear if Dallas is on the RNC’s shortlist of convention sites now that North Carolina has lost it but Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins wants to make his opinion known – he’s a firm no on the city hosting it. Jenkins cites his concern for the potential of a large gathering spreading the coronavirus. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, also a Democrat, has not extended an invitation to the RNC to host the convention in that city, though the city bid on hosting the 2016 convention. But even if he did, Jenkins says he’s a hard no:

    Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday that President Trump will be holding “full rallies” with safety precautions in place now that coronavirus restrictions across the country are being lifted. **SNIP** “There are a lot of things we can do to make sure this is safe, but people want to get out and rally. They want to get out and start campaigning and being part of this election for this president and the enthusiasm for him is through the roof,” McDaniel added.

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Republican National Committee unveiled plans on Wednesday to proceed with certain convention activities in Charlotte, even though President Donald Trump will deliver his nomination acceptance speech somewhere else. The move comes in response to growing concerns from Gov. Roy Cooper, D-N.C., that the full capacity convention Trump had requested is “very unlikely” to happen in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cooper wants the GOP to continue discussing a scaled-back convention, while Republicans are seeking assurances that more than 10 people will be allowed in a ROOM. **SNIP** The RNC and city of Charlotte signed a...

    Organizers of the Republican National Convention said Tuesday they will begin visiting potential alternative sites after North Carolina's governor told them the COVID-19 pandemic requires them to prepare for a scaled-back event if they want to hold it in Charlotte. Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, said in a letter to the top convention organizer and the national GOP chairwoman that 'planning for a scaled-down convention with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings is a necessity.' The letter came on the eve of a deadline from the GOP for assurances that Cooper would allow a full-scale event in August. Later,...

    North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper on Tuesday told the Republican National Committee that it is “very unlikely” they can host a full convention in Charlotte as planned amid the coronavirus crisis, while still leaving the door open to hosting the nominating event in the state. In a letter to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and convention president and CEO Marcia Lee Kelly, Cooper said that the state still wants “a safe RNC convention in Charlotte” that follows health guidelines, but that officials would like to discuss what a “scaled-down convention would look like.” “The people of North Carolina do not know...

    EXCLUSIVE: A gunshot was fired through a window of a Republican National Committee office in Mohave County, Arizona during a Trump Victory event Thursday night, GOP officials tell Fox News. An RNC official told Fox News that at around 7:00 p.m., a group of five GOP volunteers were gathered in the Mohave County Republican Office in BullHead City, Ariz., to host an online “MAGA Meet Up” --an online tool the campaign uses to talk with supporters-- when a gunshot shattered a window near the front door.

    President Trump warned on Tuesday that North Carolina's governor has "a week" to figure out if the Republicans' presidential nominating convention can be held in Charlotte this summer, as other states offered to hold the gathering instead. But Gov. Roy Cooper says he’s waiting for the Republican National Committee “to present to us in writing their proposals” on how they plan to hold their presidential convention amid the coronavirus pandemic before he can guarantee that the August convention can be held at “full attendance” as demanded by the president. Cooper, a Democrat, spoke the day after the president threatened to...

    With a fundraising haul that set a January record, Republicans have a lot of money. New figures show the Republican National Committee raised $27.2 million last month, bringing its total this presidential cycle to $268.3 million, easily outdistancing Democrats’ $103.1 million. For comparison on the GOP side, the last time a Republican president was an incumbent at this stage of the campaign, the RNC raised $107 million in 2004. All this 2020 money makes RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel very happy. The RNC has burned through some money but has a reserve of $76 million. What’s more, the party doesn’t have...
