"The RNC will add an additional 170 permanent staffers to its field program by the end of March, more than doubling the number already in the field to over 300. And the party expects to add 200 more before…the start of the summer.

"'Our record-breaking fundraising has fueled our ability to continue our permanent, data-driven field program in twenty-five states, including every battleground state,' RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to NBC News.


"The RNC says it will deploy staffers to 25 states across the country, and including state directors, communications directors, data directors, and field organizers. Many come from a fellowship program called the Republican Leadership Initiative, which has trained 9,000 party volunteers since January of last year.

"While the Democratic National Committee has struggled with fundraising, the RNC raised $12.4 million in January, for a total of $144.9 million since the start of 2017. The RNC says they now have four times as much cash on hand heading into this year's elections as they did at the same point in last midterms in 2014."
