“The RNC’s Ground Game of Inches”

Alexander Sammon at The American Prospect has this extended piece on the RNC’s ground game focused on building support among nonwhite voters by establishing community centers across the country. Quite interested in this in light of my interest in associational party building, which Didi Kuo and I have further developed in an essay that should be out soon in the Columbia Law Review Online. The centers, as imagined, were to “beckon potential voters with everything from movie nights to free dinners to holiday parties to gun safety trainings,” but are shrouded in secrecy and it seems unclear if the commitment to retail politics is succeeding or flailing.
