The Great America PAC and the Committee to Defend the President PAC, two conservative groups supporting President Donald Trump, announced on Wednesday they are partnering up to register one million new voters ahead of the 2020 election.

The two groups released a statement about their new "Great America Voter Drive" initiative, which consists of two phases.

"The first phase of the project will target an initial spend of more than $1 million, both nationally and in the key battleground states of Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The second phase of the project will expand to Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, and New Hampshire, including national bus tours," their statement reads.

The Trump campaign itself hopes to expand the number of states Trump wins in 2020. His campaign is targeting New Mexico, Nevada, and New Hampshire as possible states that Trump could flip, despite Republicans losing in those states during the 2018 midterms.

The chairman of Great America PAC, Ed Rollins, will also be a strategist for the Defend the President PAC to assist in targeting, messaging, and spending behind the national voter drive.

"Since Inauguration Day, President Trump has worked diligently to make America great again. We are proud to support his efforts by registering hundreds of thousands of Trump voters for the 2020 election and getting them out to vote for his 'America First' agenda," Rollins said. "Together, our two groups are uniquely positioned to continue the programs that helped elect President Trump and will re-elect him in 2020."

The two groups supported Trump in 2016 and his first two years in office with a combined spending of $55 million.
