(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), who had a lackluster tenure as chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), declared on Wednesday that he would run for House Republican Whip.
Republicans will retake the House, according to Emmer, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), who talked to media following Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Emmer saw the projected Republican majority in the House as a victory despite the fact that Republicans may not win as many races as predicted by pollsters. When Republicans nearly regained control of the House despite losing the 2020 presidential election, he claimed that they had already picked most of the “low hanging fruit” in the previous cycle. According to Emmer, President Joe Biden won by double digits in many Republican-held seats.
As the Republican whip, Emmer promised to give members more authority and use his connections to advance the party’s objectives.
“The whip’s role is to really understand the nation and be able to work with members to communicate that we want you to succeed,” How can we support your success while yet enabling us to take the necessary actions on behalf of the American people to set this situation on a more positive course? It isn’t complicated science. We’re going to have a terrific experience with it because it’s about relationships and making sure that people are empowered to do what they know is right.
Republican House majorities would only grow, according to Emmer, after the party presented its case to the general public.
In two years, he said, “I think we’re going to do a terrific job of governing that and presenting our case to the American people.
If Emmer wants to become a member of the House Republican leadership, he will have to compete with Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), the outgoing chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), and Rep. Drew Ferguson (R-GA), the chief deputy whip.
When questioned by a reporter about how the disappointing election results would affect his candidacy to become the House Republican leader, Emmer responded that Republicans had succeeded in retaking the majority in the House.
“I don’t know how we did it, but this is exactly what we planned to achieve,” said the team. A new Republican majority will be delivered by us. In 50 or so, no, 68 years, we have now successfully flipped the house three times. That is significant.
