310 First Street SE
Washington, DC 20003


The Fire Pelosi Bus will roll through all 48 states in the contiguous U.S., making stops at Victory Centers, State Party Headquarters, and other local events and sites. In addition to the RNC's focus on regaining control of the House, the tour will also boost Republican candidates in critical U.S. Senate, gubernatorial, and local state races. The mission of the bus tour is to get-out-the-vote for Republican candidates in key districts, energize supporters heading into the final days of the election, and bring the Republican message of fiscal responsibility and limited government directly to Main Street. The bus will be emblazoned with the simple phrase, "Need a Job? Fire Pelosi!"

During the span of six weeks between September 15 and the election, the Fire Pelosi Bus Tour will visit over 100 different cities, big and small, and travel more than 14,000 miles from coast to coast. The tour will help build support for local Republican Parties and candidates, as well efficiently use online fundraising tools to maximize grassroots donations. The website will have a page where visitors can donate to the RNC. To date, the RNC has deployed over 300 staffers on the ground with over 300 RNC Victory offices opened where more than 11 million voter contact calls have been made.
