Boehner explained the baseball reference in the new committee’s name.

“In 1990, the Cincinnati Reds led the major leagues from Opening Day through their World Series sweep, becoming one of the few teams to ever go ‘wire-to-wire’ in baseball,” he said in a statement. “Statistical analysts have since credited the Reds’ performance in several key areas, including defense, closer quality and pitchers’ strikeout rates, for its success. Similarly, our Wire-to-Wire digital program will focus on data analytics, grassroots mobilization, and strengthening House Republicans’ lead in key areas that drive successful online fundraising and email list building.”
