ICYMI: RNC Chairwoman McDaniel: Republicans Want to Defy History

- March 7, 2018

RNC Chairwoman: Texas Had Record Republican Turnout 

CUOMO: So big numbers, the senator agreed with the metaphor that, yes, you saw a big blue wave but it crashed into a red wall.
 
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Exactly. You had record Republican turnout. We kept hearing about this unprecedented Democrat turnout in Texas and then Republicans showed up in droves yesterday. Senator Cruz's votes doubled those of Beto O'Rourke. You saw Governor Abbott, his total votes doubled—was more than the votes of the two Democrats combined. So Republicans had a great showing in Texas. Listen, Texas is a Republican state. They’re low taxes, they care about limited government. This is a state that I travel to a lot. They support this president. They support what's happening in Washington: more jobs, deregulation, lower taxes.

RNC Chairwoman: Republicans Want to Defy History

CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: So we know historically that the first midterm of a sitting president, that the opposition party has a high turnout. We've seen that in these special elections, we've been preparing for that at the RNC, recognizing that Obama lost 60 seats in his first midterm, Clinton lost seats. I mean, this is where the historical trends are. We want to defy history, and we have something to run on. Look at where our country is, look at the results of Republican leadership: three million jobs, record unemployment, the deregulation. Ninety percent of Americans are seeing bigger paychecks because of the tax cuts. So we're going to have something to run on. Democrats right now are struggling to find a message. Their only message is, ‘Let's defeat President Trump. We want to run against President Trump.’ But they're not putting forward a vision for the American people.
