Four months before Election Day, the N.C. Republican Party is preparing to test its operation.
In a "Super Saturday" event, the party will launch four new field offices across the state for the coordinated "victory campaign." The new offices are located in Winston-Salem, Fayetteville, Greenville and Wilmington. U.S. Reps. Virginia Foxx and Renee Ellmers, along with Party Chariman Robin Hayes and other congressional candidates will cut the ribbons. Four others are already operating in Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro and Asheville.
Party spokesman Rob Lockwood said the party's goal is tens of thousands of voter contacts through phone calls and door knocking. "This is a way to engage our volunteers and test our operation in a competitive setting," Lockwood said, referring to North Carolina's battleground status.
