Earlier this week, we told you that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will be visiting Cobb County next Tuesday.
We’ve learned that RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day will be in Georgia to support the 14 in ’14 women’s GOTV initiative at the end of the first week of September. She will also make an appearance at the Gwinnett Republican Party breakfast on September 6th, along with Senator Johnny Isakson and Lt. Governor Casey Cagle.
Having the top two leaders of the Republican Party visiting Georgia within a few weeks of each other says that the national GOP is taking the Peach State’s Governor and Senate races seriously.
The interest by the RNC contrasts sharply with yesterday’s news from the College Republican National Committee. The CRNC, parent organization of the Georgia Association of College Republicans, announced a $2 million effort to get out the youth vote in 16 competitive states this fall. Georgia is not one of those states.
We were told that’s because the CRNC decided Georgia was sufficiently Republican to not merit extra attention. States that the CRNC is targeting include Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
