If you don’t think Georgia is a battleground state in the upcoming election, and that Gwinnett County is ground zero, you might want to take a look at the picture below. The woman in the middle is Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day. She was in Lawrenceville this morning, knocking on doors and asking for votes for Republican candidates.
Earlier that morning, Day, along with Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett, Senator Johnny Isakson and Lt. Governor Casey Cagle spoke at the Gwinnett GOP breakfast. Each stressed the importance of keeping Georgia’s Governor and Senate seats firmly in Republican hands, and each mentioned the importance of Gwinnett in that effort.
Day’s Gwinnett appearance was part of a visit to the Peach State by the RNC Vice-Chairman in connection with the 14 in 14 program, which is an attempt to recruit women voters. Her visit also included a stop in Cobb County on Friday. Similar voter engagement events were being held nationwide on Saturday, part of the Republican National Committee’s Victory 365 program, an ongoing effort to identify and target potential GOP voters.
