The Trump campaign’s ground game in Florida doesn’t have ground OR game. Via the Tampa Bay Times:
On Aug. 8, the Donald Trump campaign said its first two dozen campaign field offices would open across Florida within two weeks. Since then, not a single new Trump office has opened in America’s biggest battleground state, but Hillary Clinton’s campaign added another 32.
The Republican nominee only has a Sarasota statewide headquarters open in the state he absolutely must win to be elected president, while the Democratic nominee has 51 offices even though she has multiple paths to winning that don’t require Florida’s 29 electoral votes.
“We are running a 67-county strategy. We’re not taking any vote for granted, and that includes making sure we are within the communities where the people are that support this campaign,” said Simone Ward, Clinton’s Tampa-based Florida campaign director. “You’ve got to build a strong ground game, and you can’t wait until the last minute to do that.”
In September 2012 the Romney campaign had 24 Florida field offices. Apparently GOTV has a different meaning in Trumpistan.
