|August 6, 2020: Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee raised $165 million in July. Joe Biden and other speakers will not travel to Milwaukee for the Democratic National Convention.
“The fact that Biden and Trump are taking such radically different approaches to person-to-person voter outreach may be something of a wild card in the election.
Trump’s team sees its field program, which has been up and running in several states for months, as a major advantage. Biden’s campaign hired senior aides in some swing states, including Pennsylvania, as late as July.
Democrats, on the other hand, say that virtual organizing helped Jill Karofsky win a state Supreme Court race in Wisconsin earlier this year. Progressive insurgents around the country have also successfully built online volunteer operations recently.”
