RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel told Breitbart in an exclusive interview last week that she fully expects a landslide republican victory in the midterm election. She doesn’t foresee having to give up the house or anything else, that the country has built momentum for this. What do you think will happen in 2018?
McDaniel inherited the chairwoman position when Reince Priebus joined the Donald Trump white house as his chief-of-staff.
In 2018, “Republicans must only defend nine seats—seven of which are in the deep red states of Wyoming, Utah, Texas, Tennessee, Nebraska, Alabama and Mississippi. Only two GOP senators, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Dean Heller of Nevada, are expected to potentially see competitive races,” according to Breitbart.
McDaniel told Breitbart in the interview:
On the Senate side, we have a great opportunity to expand our majority in the Senate. There are 10 states where President Trump won where we have Democrat incumbents and President Trump won by large margins in some of those states. We also have infrastructure in some of those states already. The RNC had a ground game in Michigan and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. We need to be continuing to build on that infrastructure in these Senate races. We know the Democrats are rebuilding. We can turn out our vote. We need to be prepared to do that and continue to engage our voters so we can expand our majority in the Senate. On the House side, typically the party that has the White House loses the majority in the midterms—that’s been the historic trend. We want to buck that trend. We want to deliver for President Trump majorities in the House and the Senate so that he can govern.
