RNC Chairwoman: The President’s Visit to Ohio on Saturday is Why We Won
BILL HEMMER: You know what the Democrats are going to say, they are going to say that visit on Saturday drove their voters to come out in Northern Franklin County and parts of Delaware County. And I know you're going to take the other side of that. Do you think the visit on Saturday even kept this thing close?
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: The visit on Saturday is why we won. Listen, we saw what was happening in the AB early vote. We knew through our data that we needed to get our electorate engaged and energized. That's why President Trump went in on Saturday before Election Day into Delaware County where we won, which was the key county. Our data and our targeting, the RNC is on the ground, we made 1 million voter contacts, but we know what was happening, we know that most of these absentee ballots outstanding right now are Republican ballots. So, we feel very good about this victory. But absolutely President Trump is the antidote to Republican complacency. Because when he comes and says, 'Let's look at the results of my presidency: The economy is doing well, unemployment is down, people are doing better, they have more money. We have to fight for that, and I need more Republicans in Washington so we can do that.' The Democrats are doubling down on obstruct and resist and that is not a winning message.
