Desoto County GOP executive board member Samuel Jennings tells ‘Wake Up Memphis’ with Robyn Walensky how members are getting the word out to vote during these tumultuous times due to the coronavirus pandemic.“Since Mississippi usually goes for a Republican by about 18 to 20 points, the Trump campaign is mainly spending its resources in swing states,” Jennings tells ‘Wake Up Memphis.’
“What we’re focusing on this election cycle is absentee voting.”
With 82 days left until the November presidential election, the Desoto County GOP is figuring out ways to reach voters at all 41 precincts in Desoto County.“We’ve got precinct captains this time, so we’re going to have planned meetings and micro-events over at each precinct,” Jennings tells Walensky.
The social media accounts on both Facebook and Instagram are growing, and that’s one of the goals; to get the word out to vote.
“Our social media presence is going to dwarf our social media presence of previous years,” Jennings says.The Desoto County GOP is also hoping to target younger voters via Instagram and Facebook.
