Earlier this week, Scarlet noted how the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case might act as an incentive for single women to join the Democratic Party. This morning’s New York Times has a front page story explaining how Democrats will motivate single women in an effort to hold the Senate in November.
It looks like the Republican National Committee is fighting back.
A Tuesday press release from the RNC describes a Get Out The Vote plan aimed at women under age 40:
The “14 in ‘14” initiative is about mobilizing volunteers to commit 30 minutes a week during the 14 weeks leading up to the November election. Volunteers will engage women in 25 key counties with high numbers of independent and “swing” women voters. “14 in ‘14” will train these volunteers to recruit other women, identify voters, support other get-out-the-vote efforts, and be Republican messengers in their communities.
While the release highlights the kickoff of the effort in metro Detroit, it also says that Cobb and Gwinnett Counties here in Georgia will be a focus on the effort.
The Georgia Primary runoff is July 22nd. July 29th is 14 weeks from Election Day. Don’t expect a big break from campaigning following the primary.
