NC, national Republicans pushing voter outreach

Posted: Updated:

North Carolina Republicans are getting early help from the national GOP in their efforts to try to unseat Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan in November and win down-ballot seats.

State chairman Claude Pope joined Republican National Committee state director Matt Pinnell on Monday in Raleigh to unveil what's being called "Boots on the Ground."

The effort is designed to mobilize voters by training activists to promote the GOP message in their precincts. Republicans also are using mobile phone technology so volunteers can send and receive real-time voter data. There's also outreach to black and Hispanic voters.

Republicans already have set up field offices in four major cities in recent months and will open more. Pinnell said gone are the days of short-term get-out-the-vote efforts. He says voter mobilization must happen year-round.
