Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued a warning to members of her party on Monday she hopes they will take to heart ahead of the 2022 midterms later this year.
Namely, McDaniel said GOP voters cannot take for granted that the party will cruise to victory just because President Joe Biden is increasingly unpopular.
“Democrats will do anything to maintain power, so Republicans have to get out and vote,” McDaniel told Newsmax TV. “We have to be engaged, and we have to work to make sure we take back the Senate and the House so we can stop this downward spiral of our country.”
Republicans do wish America was in a better position, but Biden’s first year has been a disaster, she said, and it’s “sad” to watch people suffering from supply chain issues and more that have happened since he was sworn in a year ago, she added.
Biden has “doubled down” on the far-left, “Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wing” of the Democratic Party, said McDaniel.
“[He] just went and asked for the Senate to get rid of the filibuster, something that every single Democrat was defending a year ago,” said McDaniel. “They are all in for stacking the Supreme Court.
“They’re approving states allowing non-citizens to vote, which by the way is disapproved by 70 percent of Americans…the American people thought he was going to be a middleman, a moderate, but he’s been a Bernie Sanders, president,” she added.
And the results are not good, she added.
“I see it all across my state of Michigan,” she said. “Our grocery stores are empty. We still have kids out of school in the Detroit public school system…I say, go be an election worker. Go be a poll watcher. Talk to your neighbors.
“There’s nothing about this election that should let us feel complacent and we are on the frontlines of determining the future for our children. There is no more important election than the one upcoming in 2022,” McDaniel warned.
Democrats were also trying to strip away “every single safeguard to our elections” with their voting legislation, she cautioned.
“That bill would have stripped voter ID in 36 states,” she said. “All they’re trying to do is undermine. The security of our elections.”
