The Republican National Committee has 20 million reasons to be confident about turnout in the upcoming midterm elections.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the logistical prowess of the organization has allowed members to reach 20 million voters this election cycle by traditional phone calls and door knocking.

“Enthusiasm is up and Americans want to see this great comeback continue,” she said in a statement to NBC News on Monday. “We see that reflected in our record fundraising and in our surge of new volunteers who have already helped us connect with millions of voters.”

The network added that the RNC’s coffers are filled with $47.4 million cash on hand compared to the Democratic National Committee’s $8.7 million.

“We are not leaving a single vote unturned and we are ready to defy history this November,” Mrs. McDaniel said.

Roughly 15,000 “fellows” have also been trained by 500 RNC staffers in 27 states, the network reported.
