Feckless Republicans on every level…
Democrats Had a Plan for Georgia, Republicans Didn’t
In 2020, Republicans were out-organized and out-spent. Being out-spent isn’t fatal. Republicans were out-spent in 2016. But being out-organized frequently is. There’s a huge difference between spending money on ad buys and consultants, and spending it to change the structural environment of the election.
Just to start, I’m going to reference this J. Christian Adams piece at PJ Media which went viral.
The Capital Research Center has this deep dive into what the Center for Technology and Civil Life did in just Georgia. It starts with this:
This year, left-leaning donors Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan gave $350 million to an allegedly “nonpartisan” nonprofit, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), which in turn re-granted the funds to thousands of governmental election officials around the country to “help” them conduct the 2020 election.
What these grants did was build structural bias into the 2020 election where structural bias matters most – in densely populated urban cores. It converted election offices in key jurisdictions with deep reservoirs of Biden votes into Formula One turnout machines. The hundreds of millions of dollars built systems, hired employees from activist groups, bought equipment and radio advertisements. It did everything that street activists could ever dream up to turn out Biden votes if only they had unlimited funding.
Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart was doing a lot of important work on the the Center for Technology and Civil Life that hasn’t gotten much attention.
