The editor of The Washington Times editorial page told Yuma’s KBLU listeners Oct. 18 that the days are over when political campaigns can just raise a ton of money and spend it on TV ads and expect to win.
“It was an arms race on television,” said David Keene, a long-time conservative operative, who was the president of the National Rifle Association from 2011 to 2013–and turned back the hysteria to restrict gun rights after the spree shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
KBLU host George Braun had asked Keene if he agreed with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon’s assessment at the Value Voters Summit that politics had become analog, meaning person-to-person contact beat 30-second TV ads.
“Party professionals and candidates began to realize money, while necessary, isn’t everything,” Keene said.
“In today’s world contacting voters, contacting your peers, asking your neighbor to vote became far, far more important than it has been, since the 1960s,” he said.
Keene told Braun that in the 2016 campaign cycle the GOP recognized this shift and under the leadership of Reince Priebus built a strong ground game.
“Priebus finally figured out what a number of national party chairman had not been able to figure out–that in this modern world, there are some things a party can do and some things a party cannot do,” he said.
This ground game and field organization was handed to the Trump campaign, which is why so many of Donald J. Trump’s fundraisers were to support the Republican National Committee, he said.
Braun told Keene that he observed in Florida was that in the last weeks of the campaign, once Sen. Marco Rubio (R.-Fla.) recognized that he was going to win, he handed over his campaign organization to the Trump campaign.
Keene said in addition to the right ground game, you need the right message.
President Barack Obama built magnificent ground game and communications machine, which he handed over to Hillary R. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
“You have to have the right message,” he said. “Her message was so bad that it didn’t matter that she was reaching the voters, because they didn’t like what she was saying.”

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
