Early ballots went in the mail this week for the primary election on Aug. 28. Races in Arizona have garnered national attention, and major parties are already looking ahead to the general election in November. Members of the Republican National Committee shared some of the strategies they're using in Arizona to win voter support.
"We want to make sure we've done everything we need to do in order to win," Dan Duffey said. Duffy is deputy state director of the Arizona Republican Party. The RNC has sharply increased its presence on the ground. Regional communications director Christiana Purves said it has more than 2,000 trained fellows in Arizona. For comparison, in 2016 the party only had 5,000 nationwide. Fellows help coordinate volunteers and register voters.
