(Worthy News) - Republicans are already plotting how to harness the massive turnout operation that powered Donald Trump to victory last week and to deploy it in 2018, when a favorable map could give the party a chance to expand its Senate majority.
The Republican National Committee poured $175 million over the past four years into building a data-driven operation and this year put more than 7,000 staffers into the field — eight times more than it did in 2012.
Those resources allowed Republicans to win the White House and to keep control of the House and Senate, and to expand their number of governorships and reach an all-time high in the total of Republican attorneys general. [ Source ]
