Operation Grant seeks to stop President Trump's re-election in Ohio (John Weaver and Bill Kristol, 7/17/20, cleveland.com)

"We are now in the midst of trying times when every one must be for or against his country, and show his colors too, by his every act. Whatever may have been my political opinions before, I have one sentiment now. There are but two parties, traitors and patriots and I want hereafter to be ranked with the latter."

These words of a great son of Ohio, Ulysses S. Grant, in a letter to his father in the early days of the Civil War, are our guide and lodestar today. For us, they serve as inspiration as we seek to extend the battle against Trumpism to Grant's birthplace. To ensure the defeat of President Donald Trump and Trumpism, we're pleased to announce that our two organizations, the Lincoln Project and Republican Voters Against Trump, have joined together to launch Operation Grant. We begin this week with a paid advertising campaign and a grassroots guerrilla campaign that will help deliver Ohio's 18 electoral votes to former Vice President Joe Biden this November.

The politics of this decision are simple. For President Trump, there is a narrowing electoral map that gives him few paths to re-election. None of those paths exist without Ohio. And so Operation Grant aims to use the great American general's home turf to put the nail in the coffin of today's Neo-Confederate president.
