Transcript of President Trump’s Vote By Mail Call
President Trump: Hello, this is President Donald Trump calling from the Republican National Committee. You were there for me in 2016 when we won our historic victory. Now I need your help again. I need you to return your vote by mail ballot today. Don’t let the Democrats stop all of the progress we’ve made. They’re okay with crime. They’re okay with open borders. They’re okay with a military that’s not properly funded or not taking care of our vets. We need Republican votes. Vote Republican and return your vote by mail ballot today so we can keep making America great. Thank you.
RNC officials say President Trump’s “calls are icing on the cake in addition to the RNC’s already record-breaking volunteer voter contacts — the RNC is on pace to make 70 million voter contacts by election day.”
“Having worked closely with the RNC over the years, it’s exciting to see the incredible progress they’ve made as an organization and the work they are doing for our amazing candidates here in Arizona,” said conservative Latino organizer, Sergio Arellano.

• The RNC has transferred an additional $3.5 million to both the NRCC and NRSC.
• These efforts combined equal the largest mobilization ever by the RNC.
In the wake of damaging Project Veritas videos featuring Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s campaign staff, McSally’s camp is renewed and making a last minute push.
The RNC has been breaking records this year in order to stem what was touted as a “Blue Tide.” By the end of the election cycle, the RNC is expected to make 70 million volunteer voter contacts . That’s 20 million more contacts than 2016’s previous record of 50 million.
The RNC is investing $275 million in the 2018 cycle.
