The Maine GOP in partnership with Maine Trump Victory is now accepting applicants for our Field Fellowship program for our summer program. Maine Trump Victory is a robust, strategic organization that combines efforts of Donald J. Trump for President Inc., the Republican National Committee, and the Maine GOP into a cohesive ground game that will register new Republican voters, conduct data-driven voter contact, and turnout voters to re-elect President Donald J. Trump and Republican candidates up and down the ticket in 2020.
By becoming a Field Fellow, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside the state party, the President’s re-election team and other campaign teams on the ground across Maine. Fellows are trained in the Trump Victory Leadership Initiative (TVLI) which will help you develop universal skills to become a political operative and organizer in your community.
Field Fellows must be self-starters, goal-driven, team-oriented, and hard working. This fellowship offers an unparalleled way to gain first-hand experience in voter contact operations, communication tactics, campaign field strategy, and mobilizing for events.
