Data and technology take voter identification to new level, RNC official says
By Randy Krehbiel, Tulsa World
Matt Pinnell made most of his audience feel better Wednesday.
Then he made some of them feel uneasy.
Pinnell’s audience, the Wildcatters Club, is composed of donors to the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association’s political fund. Most, it seems, view a Hillary Clinton presidency as an oil and gas Apocalypse and so are near desperate for a Republican victory regardless of how they feel about presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Pinnell, who is responsible for state party organizing for the Republican National Committee, assured everyone the GOP has caught and surpassed the Democrats in the use of technology and data to identify and recruit voters.
Then he surprised some of them by explaining one of the ways that’s done.
