In case you missed it, the Republican National Committee teamed up with the Nevada Republican Party (NVGOP) to hold Republican Leadership Initiative (RLI) training events in both Las Vegas and Carson City on Saturday. These events were replicated all over the nation as part of the RNC’s National Day of Training to commemorate the inauguration of President Trump and celebrate GOP-led successes in 2017.
The Las Vegas and Carson City training events on Saturday afternoon drew more than 150 volunteers who came to learn how they can join the fight to make Nevada red again. These training sessions teach volunteers how they can work hand-in-hand with the NVGOP and RNC to build teams in their own neighborhoods and communities. In turn, these newly activated team leaders will work with their neighborhood teams to register, engage, and turnout voters in the 2018 midterms.
These RLI training events are examples of activities that the RNC and NVGOP are holding across the state on a regular and consistent basis as we continue to build out a massive volunteer infrastructure. Here are a few facts on how our efforts have already proven tremendously successful:
· Since June, we’ve activated dozens of neighborhood teams that have been in every county across Nevada recruiting volunteers and engaging voters ahead of the 2018 midterms.
· We have conducted nearly 100 training sessions and trained more than 600 fellows in less than 8 months.
· The Democratic voter registration advantage has narrowed by nearly 30,000 registrations since January 1, 2017.
· Our teams have knocked tens of thousands of doors to talk one-on-one with Nevadans about the issues they value most.
"The energy and enthusiasm for the Republican Party can be felt far and wide across the state, but we know our work doesn’t stop here. We will continue working tirelessly to build relationships and volunteer networks in every corner of Nevada, and we’re confident this relationship-based volunteer program has a long-lasting effect that will resonate in communities across the Silver State throughout 2018 and beyond.”
