On infrastructure of re-electing President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot, the Trump Victory ground game is unparalleled.

  • Cycle to date, Trump Victory has hired more than 1,500 field staffers. 
  • We have already registered double the voters we did in 2016. 
  • We have already activated over 1.5 million volunteers. 
  • Since 2013, we have invested more than $350 million on data, technology, and our field program. 
  • Our investments are paying off in the Hawkeye State, having hosted nearly 1,500 events and contacting more than a million Iowa voters this year alone.

Biden’s team does not have the resources or time to make up the gap in organizing we have created.

The enthusiasm for President Trump’s and Republicans’ policy achievements has fueled the largest ground game in party history. And while President Trump’s record of accomplishments is already long, day in and day out, he continues to accomplish more for Iowans. The best is yet to come.
