With less than 100 days to go until the midterms the Republicans are looking strong. GOP chief Ronna McDaniel tells us why.
The RNC and our grassroots volunteers have already made 40 MILLION voter contacts this election season.
With less than 100 days to go, let’s finish strong! #LeadRight

McDaniel: We are 100 days out from Election Day, and Americans are struggling to keep gas in their tanks and food on their tables.
The economy is in a recession and the country is on the wrong track, but Joe Biden has only further divided Americans. While families work longer hours and extra jobs just to get by, Democrats are seeking to make these dire economic realities worse or ignore them all together.
Either Democrats have buried their heads so deep in the D.C. swamp that they’re clueless about the challenges Americans face, or they simply don’t care. For voters left behind by Democrats, November can’t come soon enough.
With only a handful of primary races left, we’ve got a good sense of what to expect in November. Republicans across the country are nominating strong candidates at the local, state and federal levels.
In the Buckeye State, Ohioans have chosen Republican JD Vance to take on far-left Tim Ryan, and in the Keystone State, Pennsylvania Republicans nominated world-renowned surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz.
We’re proud to have veterans like Jen Kiggans and Jennifer-Ruth Green running for Congress as Republicans. Female congressional candidates like Madison Gesiotto Gilbert of Ohio and April Becker of Nevada are proof that Democrats don’t have a monopoly on “women’s issues.”
And Black congressional candidates like Wesley Hunt of Texas, Hispanic candidates such as Yesli Vega of Virginia and New Mexico’s Michelle Garcia Holmes, and Asian American candidates, including Michelle Steel of California and Virginia’s Hung Cao, are bucking stereotypes that minority Americans must think a certain way because of their skin color.
And voters agree. The GOP welcomed hundreds of thousands of former Democrats into our party in the past year, and primary races are already showing that the momentum is on our side.
In North Carolina, Republican turnout was 86% higher than it was in 2018. In Pennsylvania, Republicans boosted their turnout by 75%. And in Ohio, Republicans saw the highest turnout in a midterm primary ever: The GOP doubled Democrat numbers and grew by more than 20% compared to 2018.
This energy is even enabling Republicans to flip blue districts red. In south Texas, Mayra Flores became the first Republican elected to her seat in more than 150 years, despite Biden winning the district handily in 2020.
It’s obvious why Republicans are gaining ground. The Biden administration has delivered crisis after crisis – and left the American people holding the bag.
Basic goods are getting more expensive as inflation hit another 40-year-high thanks to Democrats wasting $1.9 trillion. A gallon of gasoline now sits at nearly $2 more than when Biden took office, making everyday tasks like driving to work and school more difficult.
An out-of-control border crisis has led to millions of illegal immigrants pouring into our country, allowing terrorists, gang members, and deadly drugs like fentanyl to disappear deep into our communities. Violent crime and smash-and-grab robberies are on the rise thanks to Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies…
The left’s radical, out-of-touch agenda has paved the way for the GOP to be well-positioned for Election Day. But Republicans cannot take anything for granted. We must work day in and day out to hold Biden accountable and turn out every single vote. There’s too much at stake to do anything less.
