The Lincoln project and its political strategy was announced in June 2020.
Its main focus was to “defend the Republican Party from a President Trump and the Democratic Party’s agenda of mass immigration and a growing national debt,” according to the Lincoln Project website.
The project’s mission statement reads: “The Republican Party and the American people have the right to decide whether or not to maintain or expand our nation’s immigration policy to ensure that we have a stable and prosperous future.”
This strategy was designed to appeal to Trump’s base of voters.
The project aims to “make it easy for American voters to find the Republican candidate who represents them best, and to give them the information they need to make their own decisions,” according the website.
The project is based in Chicago and focuses on two groups of people: young voters and those in the Millennial generation.
The younger demographic is a demographic that has historically been supportive of Republican candidates and policies.
In a recent interview with Fox News, former Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said that the Republican National Committee had given him the impression that the GOP was looking for young voters.
“It’s a great idea, but I think the problem is they’re using it as a recruitment tool,” Lewis said.
“They’re using this to get young people to vote for Republicans.
That’s not how we want to get them to vote.”
He added that there are a lot of reasons why young voters are not being courted by the Republican party.
“I think there’s a lot more of an emphasis on social issues than they do on issues of national security and defense,” Lewis added.
Lewis’ comments about recruiting younger voters came after President Trump signed the American Immigration Reform and Control Act into law.
The bill allows states to refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities if they believe an individual is in the country illegally.
