Trump Campaign Gets Record-Setting Shot in the Arm from Major Evangelical Group

One of America’s leading evangelical groups will be putting $62 million of effort behind electing former President Donald Trump.

Faith & Freedom will use the money for voter registration and turnout, voter support, and knocking on doors, according to Politico.

While spending $10 million more than it did in 2020, the group plans to hand out 30 million pieces of literature in 125,000 churches, with a focus on battleground states.

“In terms of home visits and voters reached at the door, to my knowledge, it’s the largest effort on the right outside of the Republican National Committee ever,” said Ralph Reed, who oversees the organization.

Reed said when Republicans are outspent, it hurts their chances.

“In this business you’re paid to worry, and we certainly have seen in recent cycles — particularly in the statewide races and especially the Senate races — we’ve seen the spending gap become overwhelming, serious and debilitating,” Reed said.

About 10,000 people will be deployed with a focus on getting 1 million newly-registered evangelical voters to the polls and turning out another 7.8 million evangelicals identified as low-propensity voters.

Reed said that during Trump’s time in office Trump “was so pro-life that it was astonishing. And as a result of that, he’s going to get more running room from the pro-life grassroots than a typical candidate might get or that he would have gotten in ’16. In ’16 I think there was a lack of trust, and now there is total trust,” according to Politico.

Trump’s recent speech to the National Religious Broadcasters Convention warned of a “radical left, corrupt political class” opposed to Christianity, according to The New York Times.

“Christians, they can’t afford to sit on the sidelines in this fight,” Trump said, adding that the liberals oppose Christianity because “they know that our allegiance is not to them. Our allegiance is to our country, and our allegiance is to our Creator.”

“No one will be touching the cross of Christ under the Trump administration. I swear to you,” he also said then, according to Scripps News Service.

Trump supporters believe Trump can transform the nation, Scripps reported.

“We’re 100 percent behind Donald Trump and want to see America great again,” Vicky Fukes of Delaware said at the 2024 Conservative Political Action Conference. “One nation under God. That’s the way it’s got to remain.”

Christian Baldwin of Maryland said the issue transcends partisan warfare.

“It’s not just political. It’s a spiritual sickness that’s really taken root in this country,” he said, suggesting President Joe Biden’s election in 2020 was a warning.

“Perhaps, what we’re experiencing is just a way for God to remind us what our true purpose is,” he said.
