RNC Statement on 2018 Midterm Election

WASHINGTON — Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the results of the midterm election:

"Grassroots enthusiasm for President Trump, who did more than any President in history to support Republican candidates, and the Republican Party’s expansive get-out-the-vote operation, turned the forecasted Democrat tsunami into a ripple," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "With gains in the Senate, Republicans defied history, an achievement reached only four times in history. Despite record House retirements and massive Democrat candidate fundraising advantages, Republicans stand in a stronger position than nearly anyone predicted. Democrats must now come to the table to work with President Trump and Republicans to keep our economy strong, secure our borders, and continue to move the country in the right direction."
