GOP PAC Aims to Take on Obama’s Union Forces

By Henry Reske,

A new Republican super PAC aims to put boots on the ground in key states in an effort to blunt big labor’s traditional campaign on behalf of Democrats that includes door-to-door canvassing, phone banks, poll workers and get-out-the vote operations.

The effort by the Republican Union PAC is in contrast to the other super PACs and groups backing the GOP that are primarily relying on radio and television ads to oppose President Barack Obama and other Democrats, the Washington Post reported.

Bo Harmon, one of the founders of Republican Union, explained that the goal of the PAC is “to help Republican candidates by providing boots on the ground grassroots operations in targeted states.” He said that the Republican Union has begun fundraising operations to pay for travel and lodging of conservative activists willing to travel for anywhere from a few days to a few months to provide grassroots campaign support.
