Even Without A Strong Ground Game, Trump Supporters Hopeful
This year’s presidential race is defying tradition in many ways. Republican Donald Trump has all but guaranteed himself to be the party’s presidential nominee with the absence of one thing most political candidates find essential. From our Statehouse Bureau Jo Ingles reports.
This weekend in Republican Delaware County, only a handful of volunteers gathered at the coffee shop where Sara Marie Brenner, a supporter of Republican Donald Trump, was holding a meeting to train community volunteers.
“Do I wish that there was a stronger ground game? Absolutely. But I see we are making headway and we are making strides. But I also just have to wonder if it’s going to matter.”
Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper thinks the ground game does matter for Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton.
“We think we have more staff in Ohio than Donald Trump has in the entire country in terms of on the field organization.”
Pepper credits a strong ground game for President Obama’s wins in 2008 and 2012.
