CRNC Adds Georgia to List of Targeted States

In what could be considered a sign of concern over the possible outcome of the November elections, the College Republican National Committee extended the GOTV campaign it announced in August to eight additional states, including Georgia. The other states are Massachusetts, Hawaii, Rhode Island, Maryland, Kansas, Minnesota, and Virginia.

Designed to reach millennials under age 25 and to get them to vote for the GOP candidates, the campaign features two sets of ads. One, entitles Shark Vote, which plays off the Shark Tank TV series. The other is College CSI, which echoes the popular CBS TV series. Both sets of ads will be shown over the Internet on channels such as Hulu.

    Good luck getting folks to vote Republican in Minnesota. Dayton and Franken have been running circles around their GOP competition.

    Georgia makes sense. The others not so much. Why not send the kids to real battle ground states. Georgia shouldn’t be on the list of battle ground states, but it is this year.

    That might be my favorite example of “old, out-of-touch consultant” trying to reach young voters ever.
