RNC Kills Program to Deploy Hill Staffers

Theres never been a commitment from the RNC for a certain number of people to be deployed to the states, and its not something we planned for in our Victory program, John McClelland, a spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party, wrote in an e-mail. If people were deployed to Ohio, we might have a hard time finding something for them to do that isnt already assigned to a volunteer.

Garren Shipley, communications director for the Virginia Republican Party, said in an e-mail that his group hadnt requested any help from the deployment program either.

Weve got fantastic campaigns this year with huge grassroots support and hadnt thought all that much about asking for outside help, Shipley said. Weve got several districts with incumbents who are in excellent shape, and if we need to draw out-of-district support, thats the first place wed call. But so far we havent even had to do that.

Were in good shape with or without deployment, he added.
