Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign will start in-person canvassing in certain battleground states next week, The Hill reports.
The campaign will begin targeting voters who have been tough to reach by phone or digitally in Nevada, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. Volunteers will then move on to other states.
“Our voter contact operation is the most innovative and technologically advanced of any presidential campaign in history, and it has been thriving in this unprecedented environment — especially in terms of the most important metric: meaningful conversations with voters,” Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement.
“This has been critical in putting us on offense against Trump in many states he won in 2016 … We’re now expanding on our strategy in a targeted way that puts the safety of communities first and foremost and helps us mobilize voters who are harder to reach by phone now that we’re in the final stretch — and now that Americans are fully dialed-in and ready to make their voices heard,” O’Malley added.
The Biden campaign plans to add 79 literature supply centers in 17 battleground states.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Biden campaign has focused more on digital outreach, while the Trump campaign has been holding in-person rallies.
