RNC Chairwoman: Democrats’ Resist And Obstruct Playbook Will Not Work in November
MARIA BARTIROMO: A couple of weeks ago the President said that he is going to be getting out more and more. I think these rallies really empower him. He likes the energy he gets from the crowds. If he is campaigning five to six days a week going into the midterm elections, that’s going to move the needle, isn't it, for the Republicans?
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: It is. The biggest concern Republicans have going into this midterm is complacency. Listen, the party that holds the White House usually loses, on average, 30 seats in the House going into that first midterm. We need to wake up our voters and let them know that they have got to come fight for this election, fight for this turnaround that this country is feeling. People are taking home more money, they are feeling better, their lives are better because of Republicans in Washington and the only way we are going to set Washington straight and get bipartisanship in Washington is to reject the Democrat playbook of obstruct and resist and not working with this President at anything. So we have to reject that and bring more Republicans and then Democrats will rethink, ‘Yeah, maybe we should work with this President, because this resist and obstruct playbook didn’t work for us in November.’
