National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Rep. Tom Emmer vowed, “retire Speaker Pelosi once and for all,” as he announced the strategy to be used for the 2022 elections.
“Midterm elections are historically checks on the party in power, and I believe that’s going to be bad news for House Democrats,” Emmer projected, according to Fox News Feb. 10.
And he cautioned, ”It’s not going to be easy, but we’re going to finish the job that we started.” After the strong recovery of seats resulting from the Nov. 3 vote, there are only five more to go to gain back control, lost in 2018.
Statistics show that in midterm elections, the president’s party loses 25 seats. Because of that, the goal does not seem so difficult to achieve next year for Republicans.
Emmer, who has represented Minnesota for four terms in the House, reveals that his party targets 47 Democratic representatives who could lose the next election, given the vulnerabilities detected.
On the one hand, 29 represent states where President Joe Biden lost districts and won by a tiny vote difference.
On the other hand, eight more Democrats are considered “weak” and underperforming because the voting margin they received was less than 10 percent, according to Emmer.
As part of the strategy to be used in 2022, Republicans will again apply the successful tactics of 2020.
“We’re going to build off of last cycle’s successful blueprint. That means we’re going to recruit great candidates again. We’re going to deliver a winning message to voters, and we’re going to raise the resources that are necessary to win,” Emmer explained.
Additionally, Emmer notes that Biden’s executive orders and the Democrats’ policies have hurt Americans, and the Republicans would settle the score with them in the next election.
“We will relentlessly hold House Democrats accountable for their socialist agenda and ensure voters understand the damaging impact policies like defunding the police, government-run health care and ending the Keystone XL Pipeline will have on Americans’ everyday lives,” Emmer highlighted, according to The Western Journal.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was highly critical of Pelosi, stating that her partisanship made the last two years of the House, under her leadership, some of the “least productive” in Congress’s history.
“Two months ago, the American people said ‘enough,'” McCarthy asserted.
“Enough with politicians who dictate what you can say, where you can eat, and whether you can go to church. Enough with politicians who ignore the stay-at-home lockdowns they impose on the rest of us.” ” Enough with the arrogance and the hypocrisy,” he added.
