NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes visited Yadkinville last Thursday morning to meet with local neighborhood team members and activists to discuss the sustained field operation, the Republican Leadership Initiative program and how the efforts in the field will help elect Donald Trump and other Republican nominees.
The stop is part of a statewide tour Hayes is conducting to meet with team members and volunteers in every region. He also visited King and Mount Airy.
Attendees at the chairman’s Yadkinville stop at the Yadkin GOP Headquarters included Allen Caudle, Ray Shore and Brian Haynes, among other NCBoots team members.
“You can’t just do a push before the election and hope to be consistently successful. As chairman in 2012, I saw the need for a sustained field operation and I was thrilled to return as chairman this year to find that’s exactly what we’ve got. Since 2013 there have been paid staffers on the ground working to establish the greatest ground game operation the state has ever seen. The historic investment that’s been made in North Carolina helped Thom Tillis defeat Kay Hagan in 2014 and is the cornerstone of a permanent, year-round ground game that engages in every community across the state. We’ve been building our operation for years preparing for 2016. We’re ready to elect Donald Trump, Richard Burr, Pat McCrory, Dan Forest and all of our Republican nominees, while holding on to our majorities in the state House and Senate,” Hayes said.
In addition to discussion on the upcoming general election, Hayes also discussed the ongoing training, leadership programs and organizing happening in the state among GOP supporters.
“We have 50 times the staff in battleground states than at this time in 2012, including more than 200 Neighborhood Team Leaders in the most targeted areas of North Carolina (in addition to the existing county and local party organizations across the state),” Hayes said.
“This cycle our ground game focuses heavily on targeted voter registrations in communities across the state. Our efforts are centered around identifying, persuading and turning out conservative/GOP-leaning unaffiliated voters — efforts that have helped Republicans consistently out-register the Democrats this year.”
