A pro-Trump political group is eyeing a big investment in four 2020 battleground states.
The Committee to Defend the President told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview it would invest $1 million each in Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, and North Carolina ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Its efforts will be primarily focused on mobilizing and registering one million new voters from those jurisdictions.
Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, told Breitbart News it was “crucial” for President Donald Trump to be reelected so he could continue to move the country forward for all Americans.
“You look at what the president has done without even having Congress on his side,” Harvey said. “He has had some significant successes, if he didn’t have the Mueller investigation over his head as a distraction I think he would have far greater successes.”
The move comes just as Democratic contenders are set to have their first primary debate, signaling the start of the 2020 election season.
