The Trump campaign has announced that it is looking to beat Democrat ballot harvesting in states across the country, specifically taking aim at operations funded by billionaire George Soros.
"We recently alerted you that a Soros-linked Super PAC has begun targeting 6 battleground states with a $75 MILLION spending blitz to buy Crooked Joe the White House," a Thursday campaign fundraising email read, according to the Washington Times.
"But there’s something important we want to add…some of those states have legalized BALLOT HARVESTING," the email added, highlighting Soros-linked efforts in the battleground of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
"At the beginning of the year, President Trump made a major announcement that our campaign would ballot harvest in the states where it’s legal to counter the Left's schemes," the email added, asking for financial contributions to the Trump campaign’s Ballot Harvesting Fund.
Ballot harvesting refers to the act of a person other than the voter turning in a ballot, usually a mail-in ballot.
While Republicans have previously disavowed the practice and pushed for it to be eliminated, Trump earlier this year stated that he would embrace it in states where it’s legal in order to fight back against the Democrats. Many pundits have also called for the GOP to get on board and fight fire with fire, instead of letting the Democrats undertake the practice with no pushback.
In February, a fundraising email stated, "The radical Democrats have used ballot harvesting to cancel out YOUR vote and walk away with elections that they NEVER should have won. But I’m doing something HUGE to fight back.”
He continued: “Our path forward is to MASTER the Democrats’ own game of harvesting ballots in every state we can. But that also means we need to start laying the foundation for victory RIGHT NOW.”
Trump echoed the sentiment in March, telling the crowd at CPAC, "We will become masters at ballot harvesting."
"We have to beat the Democrats at their own game, and we'll do it legally. The agenda I've laid out today will end America's destruction."
