Lara Trump confirms RNC to hire ‘fantastic’ Scott Presler for ballot harvesting efforts

New RNC co-chair Lara Trump confirmed how she intends to incorporate legal ballot harvesting into a winning strategy with “The Persistence.”

Rather than subvert the grassroots movement within the Republican Party like RINOs have often done, the changing of the guard at the Republican National Committee signaled the intent to deviate from a culture of losing that had repeatedly seen the GOP snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Friday, while speaking with Benny Johnson on his podcast “In the Arena,” Trump explained her plans on following through with making legal ballot harvesting “a huge part of what we’re planning to do.”

“But we also have to start thinking about legal ballot harvesting, something we have never embraced as a party. We are going to start doing it now. I am going to have a call very soon with Scott Presler, who is an amazing voter registerer,” she told Johnson.” He has registered so many people in this country. I think he’s fantastic. I want him on our legal ballot harvesting division.”

After the recently elected RNC co-chair noted Presler was “the first person [she] thought of,” he reacted to Johnson’s post of the clip, “Oh my gosh. We can do this. Let’s come together as a family & save the country we love. Right now, we’re…scheduling voter registration drives at gun shows, places of worship, rodeos, farmers markets, & other venues across the USA. Let [sic] show love by taking positive action.”

On his own X timeline, Presler, who some had even argued in favor of replacing Ronna McDaniel as RNC chair before Trump and Michael Whatley were named co-chairs, offered a brief background on who he is for those lacking familiarity.

“Oh my gosh. Since I’m trending on X, please allow me to introduce myself,” he wrote as he detailed, “I’m an Eagle Scout, the son of a retired Navy Captain, & graduated w/honors from George Mason University,” before breaking down his extensive record on the frontlines of voter turnout efforts with his organization Early Vote Action.

“I promise to spend the next 8 months doing everything within my power to elect President Trump & give him a Republican Congress he can work with. My heart is in this, my passion is unbridled and unmatched, & I’m proud to be an American. I look forward to working with each of you to save the country we love,” concluded Presler.

The enthusiasm for the announced collaboration with the enduring grassroots dynamo wasn’t limited to Trump and Johnson as others not only cheered for Presler’s involvement, they also recounted how he had personally inspired them to become more active in driving voter turnout in their communities.

As one user put it, “I haven’t seen anyone work harder or more tirelessly than Scott to get conservatives into office — the man is a national treasure & hopefully will get the recognition he so rightly deserves.”
