DNC Launches ‘Battleground Build Up 2020’ to Target States Trump Won in 2016
Will the DNC actually stick to this?
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) recently launched “The Battleground Build Up 2020” to focus on the key states President Donald Trump won in 2016.
The states include:
- North Carolina
WISCONSIN! Can DNC Chairman Tom Perez locate Wisconsin on a map? I wonder if he asked Hillary. I’m kind of shocked the list did not include Ohio.
Anyway! From The Hill:
A DNC official said that past presidential campaigns had urged the committee to begin laying critical political infrastructure early so that the eventual nominee could hit the ground running after the party’s national convention in July.
“In the 2016 race and in past campaigns, they’ve all stressed to us that the most important thing the DNC can do is lay the groundwork for the nominee to come in and build up dramatically,” the official told reporters on a conference call.
To be sure, the eventual nominee will have to compete in the general election with the political behemoth run by Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC), which has already sought to expand its presence in the same six battleground states targeted by the DNC.
The DNC has to be careful with money, though. The Republicans have consistently outraised the Democrats since Trump’s inauguration.
Democrats only raised $28 million in 2019 compared to the Republicans raking in $72.3 million.
The Hill tried to find “a silver lining” for the Democrats with the combination of the presidential candidates and DNC, which raised $580 million total in 2019.
Trump’s campaign and the GOP raised $463 million in 2019. Yes, the Democrats came out on top, but they had over 20 candidates in the year.
It’s only Trump and the Republican Party. So is that really a silver lining?
Hillary’s campaign manager in 2016 Robby Mook called it “a big step forward from 2016,” which is absolutely true. The DNC thought for sure that Hillary would wipe the floor with Trump. We all know that ended.
The Republicans do not appear worried:
“The RNC and the Trump Campaign are lapping the Democrats on every front – organizing, fundraising, volunteer training, registering voters, and more,” said Mandi Merritt, an RNC spokesperson. “Thanks to our permanent data-driven ground game, Trump Victory has never left the key states that will be crucial to delivering President Trump another victory in 2020, and this will make all the difference come Election Day.”

to the full extent allowed by law.
Go ahead, spend millions, Democrats, all the while stepping on your own d!ck with your phony impeachment.
I’m calling 43 to 45 states for Trump in a Reaganesque landslide.
Phony impeachment and the democrats inability to nominate a candidate that has even a remote chance of being electable.
It’s like watching a slow motion train wreck. You know you shouldn’t but you just can’t help yourself.
There were several reasons Hillary lost those “blue/purple ” states, one of which was taking them for granted.
The DNC (as despicable as progressives that they are) are very likely to have learned their lesson, and will not repeat the same campaigning error.
They haven’t learned any lessons. Like fielding a candidate that isn’t batshit insane and actually has a chance of winning an election. Or that there are actually people that live between the left and right coast that the democrats might want to at least acknowledge and not ignore. Or that a democratic candidate might have to compromise their highfalutin liberal/progressive principles to some extent to get elected to office.
Nope. Don’t think the democrats have learned any of those lessons and the 2020 presidential elections are going to be like a slow motion train wreck. You know you shouldn’t watch but just can’t help yourself.
I agree that the progressive/socialist party aka the democratics will likely nominate a batshit crazy candidate.
However, the batshit crazy nominee and the DNC will have campaign consultants that will know how to run a better campaign than hillary.
And a “consultant” is only effective if you actually listen to them. And I can’t imagine Biden, Warren or even Sanders allowing themselves to be guided by a “consultant”. Their over-inflated egos would prevent them from doing so. To take the advice of a consultant would be all but admitting they didn’t know what they were doing. And that’s something there precious egos simply couldn’t allow.
There is nothing they can do to undo the damage damage their endless stream of scheming, since Trump’s election, has done to their reputation. Their conduct has been atrocious.
Given the recent idiotic changes in CA from power outages to water restrictions, I wonder if it will be in play for the GOP.
As to the list of battleground states the DNC have selected, it is increasingly obvious that they consider Ohio lost.
I think your impeachment Hoax has already got your message out.
I would never characterize this malicious scheming as a “hoax”.
I am in a blue state and it is on DNC. Go waste your time going after red states as we work to red-pill your blue states. I truly hate the Democrats that are left in the Democrat party that have been working to destroy the US and bring in Socialism so that the Leftist self entitled intolerant racist elite can eat cake while everyone else suffers.
As an Independent I will also “help” the cause by voting in the Democrat primary for the most unelectable jackass possible. Right now though with the plethora of jackasses it is hard to tell who that will actually be. Also I am working on a campaign to draft Hillary for 2020 because the democrat party needs her (“badly”). The Russians the Democraps keep bleating about in 2016 were actually fed up Independents who have no real candidate so we decided to tank Hillary and Jeb in 2016 with truth since that faceoff (where only globalist would be options so either way they could not lose) appeared to be the globalists plan with a Hillary win.
“As an Independent I will also “help” the cause by voting in the Democrat primary for the most unelectable jackass possible.”
I am personally debating between Bernie and Warren. I vote in the democrat primary because the county has become very heavily democrats so my vote goes to the “least bad” county & district judges.
I am sure the DNC will use their funds frugally and only reach out to non-binary voters because they are the swing voters. I can’t believe I just wrote that.
When I write something I can’t believe I’m writing, I downvote myself.
The only counties that Hillary won in Ohio in 2016 were the ones containing Columbus and Youngstown (Franklin and Mahoning counties). The radical left and the rust-belt/union thugs still have their head in the sand. Most other Buckeyes have experienced and recognized the benefits of Trump.
I think the campaign will be one calling the voters stupid rubes that fell for the Trump message; that, like with health care, guns, schools, smoking age, and other decisions are best left in the hands of Your Betters in Washington. These are not things to be left in the hands of average people like you. We live in big cities and can see the oceans; you don’t.
Vote for us.
They’re still operating in the 20th century while Trump is blowing them away digitally in the 21st.
Not so sure. A lot of their attitudes seem more suited to the 13th century.
The abundance of good paying blue collar jobs will help put those States into the red column, just like they were in ’16.
Hi Demmies, welcome to the midwest, have some BBQ or other delights, dance for us and pretend that you care, then get your sorry ass back to your precious coast and go hug it while you learn to code.
There are some tough SOBs in the heartland and they have long memories.
