GOP Star Tom Emmer Looks To 2022

    If you're a Republican you know a lot of names from the 2020 election cycle. Like the beginning of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", You know Kevin and Mitchell and Donald, and Michael...but do you recall, the most successful reindeer of all? That would be, Republican Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota. Why? Because he is the guy most responsible for giving the Republicans their only real victory in 2020, picking up over a dozen seats in the House. Lucky for the Republicans, he's got that job again in 2022. He's also nimble on current issues.

    FNC: "The chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee said the initial policy moves by President Biden are helping him in his mission to win back the House majority next year. 'The last cycle we ran and won in districts all over the country by highlighting exactly the policies that these guys, now with the stroke of a pen, have followed through on,' Rep. Tom Emmer said in an interview with Fox News, as he pointed to a flurry of executive orders signed by Biden in the week since the president's inauguration. Looking back to the 2020 elections, when House Republicans defied expectations and flipped around a dozen Democratic held seats, which dramatically shrank the Democrats' majority in the chamber, the four-term GOP congressman from Minnesota highlighted that 'the polling we did last cycle showed us in places like Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, just how devastating this job-killing, anti-energy agenda is. That's why we won.' "

    The White House provides Emmer with ample ammunition. "Today is climate day at the White House, which means today is jobs day at the White House. In my view, we've already waited too long to deal with this climate crisis and we can't wait any longer. It's time to act. Just like we need a unified national response to COVID-19, we desperately need a unified national response to the climate crisis, because there is a climate crisis." Thanks Joe. We owe you one. You'll receive it in November of 2022.

    Emmer knows a big fat target when he sees one. "If we look at just what he [Biden] did in the first few days with his pen, he killed the Keystone XL Pipeline, which with it goes the 11,000 American jobs." They've "already started giving us the information that we need."

    The NRCC's job is get to voters in "places where this is incredibly important that they understand what the choice is...First and foremost, hold House Democrats accountable for their votes and what they do. We use simply their actions and their words."

    He also said priorities are recruiting "talented and diverse candidates," ensuring that "our campaigns are well funded," making sure that "the redistricting that's going to happen during this cycle is fair" and the NRCC "knows its audience, and focusing on a positive, conservative agenda."

    "At the end of the day...I think elections are decided by the issues that impact peoples' wellbeing. And midterms are historically checks on the party in power, and that's bad news for House Democrats. We're going to ensure that voters have a clear understanding of the Democrats' socialist agenda and the damaging impact it's going to have on their daily lives."
