RNC Chair: ‘The Republican Party Is the Party of Accomplishments’

‘All I know is the Republican Party is the party of accomplishments with 4 million jobs coming to the country, wages up, all of the good things happening’

EXCERPT:

MCDANIEL: "You know, the economy does motivate the voters but it is a contrast. I’ll be honest with you, Chuck, when we saw in our polling when we were in these states, when we talked about the tax cuts and all of the good things happening, Tom Perez just talked about the accomplishment wing of the Democratic Party. I don’t know what wing that is. All I know is the Republican Party is the party of accomplishments with 4 million jobs coming to the country, wages up, all of the good things happening. But when you take just that to the voters, it doesn’t move the needle as much. You have to contrast with it with what would happen if you the Democrats take control of the House, Nancy Pelosi said she wants to raise taxes, you'll have more obstruction and resistance, more investigation. That slowing down of the economy has been what we’ve seen move the numbers. So I don’t know why good news doesn’t just bring voters out. You would think that it would. But they need to see what’s at stake, and that’s been the message we’ve been taking to them."
