RPV Rolls Out New Local Unit Websites Built With Win.gop
The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) is proud to announce that more than 50 local committees in the Commonwealth are now equipped with official websites capable of engaging and mobilizing Republican voters ahead of the 2016 election. RPV partnered with the Republican National Committee (RNC) and .gop, the only online domain in the world run by a political party, to build and launch the county sites.
“As one of the most important swing states in the nation, we in Virginia know that the key to electing strong, conservative leaders starts with engaging voters at the local level in valuable and accessible ways,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “We are proud to ensure today that every county has access to the online tools and resources necessary to do so.”
In order to achieve this goal, RPV worked with local units not already online to build a new site using win.gop – a new website-building tool for Republican candidates and parties with built-in donation, integration, event management, and social media engagement capabilities. Each site created through win.gop uses a .gop domain to enhance branding and expand the Republican footprint online.
“In today’s technology-driven world, it is critical that parties and candidates meet this need head-on in an easy, hassle-free way,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Virginia is leading the charge in increasing voter engagement and turnout online by utilizing the win.gop website for each of its counties, and I encourage other state and county parties as well as candidates to follow their lead ahead of the November election.”
“Win.gop is an innovative and user-friendly tool that provides Republicans at every level of government with quality websites and a more notable online presence,” said Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) President and .gop Chairman Matt Walter. “This new initiative by the RPV perfectly illustrates how the .gop domain can be used to get out the vote and improve our voter-engagement strategies.”
