Insight: Republicans Still Seen Falling Behind in Election Data Wars
“There’s a fundamental cultural problem” in how Republicans have dealt with technology in recent elections, said Vincent Harris, a Republican digital strategist who this year is helping candidates such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
“Democrats are still a couple (election) cycles ahead of us,” Harris said.
“I have a dozen clients with primary elections in two months, and early voting starts in two weeks. If I were waiting for people sitting inside the (Capital) Beltway for marching orders, I wouldn’t have done anything yet,” Harris said. “We have had to do this ourselves without a lot of help from the establishment.”
