A top Republican official says President Trump's rally in El Paso this week drew the most Democrats of any of the president's campaign events since his election.

By the numbers: According to figures provided to Axios by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, an estimated 50% of the roughly 30,000 people who registered online were Democrats, 25% were swing voters and 25% were Republicans.

People registering for the rally submitted a phone number when they requested tickets, and that information was used to match the person with party voting data. (It’s unclear how many of those who registered online attended in the venue or in the overflow outside.)

  • An estimated 70% of registrants were Hispanic, according to the data.
  • Two-thirds had voted in two or fewer of the past four elections, per the data.
  • The El Paso County Coliseum, where the event was held, holds about 6,500 people, the El Paso Timesreported. The El Paso Fire Department told the paper the attendance "might be 10,000 with the people outside."

Parscale said: "Our data shows that President Trump is building a coalition that extends far beyond the traditional Republican base."

  • "His fight to secure the border and finally finish the wall clearly energized and led to a significant amount of Democrat and Independent swing voters to attend his rally in El Paso."

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tweeted Sunday that he will grant Democrats' request to call former special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before his committee.

The big picture: The announcement comes on the heels of Mueller publishing an op-ed in the Washington Post that defended the Russia investigation and conviction of Roger Stone, whose sentence was commuted by President Trump on Friday.

Florida smashes single-day record for new coronavirus cases

Data: Covid Tracking Project; Chart: Axios Visuals

Florida reported 15,299 confirmed coronavirus cases on Sunday — a new single-day record for any state, according to its health department.

The big picture: The figure shatters both Florida's previous record of 11,458 new cases and the single-state record of 11,694 set by California last week, according to AP. It also surpasses New York's daily peak of 11,571 new cases in April, and comes just a day after Disney World reopened in Orlando.
