Trump Campaign and RNC Announce Transfers to NRCC and NRSC

WASHINGTON — President Donald J. Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) have announced the transfer of $8 million to the NRSC and the NRCC in support of their midterm election efforts. The Trump Campaign will max out to nearly 100 candidates in its first round of contributions. The RNC will transfer $4 million to the NRSC and $4 million to the NRCC.
 
"Thanks to President Trump and our supporters, we have the resources to protect and strengthen our Republican majorities in Congress," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "Because of the President’s leadership, Americans have higher wages, more jobs, more money in their pockets and results heading into the midterm elections. Together with our sister committees, I’m confident we can deliver that positive message to Americans all across the country and elect more Republicans so President Trump can continue to deliver for the American people."
 
"President Trump needs more elected leaders in Congress to help him implement his America First agenda and together, I’m confident we can deliver," said Campaign Manager Brad Parscale. "The President authorized this support for the GOP committees and candidates because he is committed to supporting the NRSC, NRCC, and congressional candidates who will work with him as we make America great again."
 
The RNC and Trump campaign have made historic investments in the midterms. The RNC will spend a quarter billion dollars to protect Republican majorities in Washington and State houses across the country, marking the largest ground game investment ever made. The RNC's commitment spans over two dozen states as the committee expands its permanent, data-driven field program for the midterms.
 
RNC field teams have made more than 22 million voter contacts across the country and trained nearly 17,000 Trump Republican Leadership Initiative fellows to expand the Party's reach ahead of November. Campaigns in all 50 states, including every targeted U.S. Senate race this cycle, are using RNC Data to help them win. The committee has collected more than 100 billion data points to better target voters, and has worked with the Trump Campaign to gain over 16 million new email addresses through digital fundraising efforts.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Winter Meeting Remarks


RNC CHAIRWOMAN RONNA MCDANIEL

2018 RNC WINTER MEETING GENERAL SESSION REMARKS
WASHINGTON, D.C.
FEBRUARY 2, 2018

REMARKS AS PREPARED FOR DELIVERY


Hello everyone and welcome to our Winter Meeting! I am so happy you’re with us as we reflect on this incredible year. We had a few milestones since we last met, I just marked my one-year anniversary as Chairman of the RNC and also commemorated President Trump’s first year in office. We have so much to celebrate. I want to thank the RNC staff, including our Chief of Staff Richard Walters, our incredible Member Services Team, Emily Threadgill, Mariana and Callie for their work this week, our Co-Chair, fellow officers, and all of you, our Members.

I want to acknowledge three members who are attending their last meeting: Randy Evans, Susan Hutchinson and Roger Villere. On behalf of the RNC, thank you for all of your hard work. Special thanks to our speakers this week including Speaker Gingrich and KellyAnne Conway. I hope each of you enjoyed the meetings and our sessions. I would also be remiss if I did not thank my wonderful husband and kids. Finally, I want to thank President Trump and Vice President Pence for fighting for our country fearlessly and with so much passion.

Let’s think about how far we have come since President Trump was elected: Republicans delivered the biggest set of tax cuts in a generation. Three million workers have received bonuses as a result, and today, millions of Americans have more take-home pay. Unemployment is at a 17-year low, 2.4 million new jobs have been created, job-killing regulations have been cut, our military is strong and veterans are being cared for. This President is making America Great Again.

Now let’s compare that to what the Democrats accomplished this past year. They’ve worked together alright - to obstruct, to resist, and to divide this country. On Tuesday, their hatred was on full display when Congressional Democrats sat on their hands during the President’s unifying speech. They refused to stand when the President of the United States walked into the room, when he talked about the American flag, the national anthem, or lowering African American unemployment. They refused to stand for a 12-year old boy who puts flags on the graves of our veterans.

They hate this president more than they love this country.

They forced a government shut down on the American people because they refuse to work with him. Not one Democrat voted for historic tax cut legislation. Not one. In fact, Nancy Pelosi thinks that one thousand dollars in bonuses for hardworking Americans are crumbs.

Well I have news for you Nancy. We’ll remember in November. This November, let’s send them home. But it’s not going to be easy. History tells us that the party in power loses seats in the midterms. But when I look at how Democrats behaved at the State of the Union, it is clear that we have to keep our majorities in Congress.

We at the RNC are ready. Our permanent ground game has staff in 22 states across the country. They have knocked on four million doors and made eight million phone calls. They have held more than 700 Republican Leadership Initiative trainings for 7,000 fellows. To put that into context – we trained 5,000 fellows in total during last year’s presidential cycle.

Our total investment of $200 million in digital and data work over the last few years has allowed our Data team to build a warehouse of three hundred terabytes of data. If you were to store that on a DVD you would need over 63,000 DVD’s. Our Digital and Communications departments have played a huge role in our outreach to voters.

We’re connecting with grassroots in ways we never thought possible, through social media, email campaigns, and daily published products. On Tuesday, our Digital Department setup an online fundraising ticker to display the names of donors under a live stream during the President’s State of the Union, raising a combined $1.56 million dollars from over 50 thousand people.

Democrats are energized and we need to outmatch them because we know what’s at stake - the future of our country. This is at the heart of everything we do at the RNC. It is the reason we have been so successful over the past year. It is why we have engaged more voters, recruited more volunteers, and reached more communities.

We are on the frontlines of the movement you created. As President Trump said at his Inauguration, “this is your moment: it belongs to you.” We are here to drive this movement forward, and together we are creating history. America is the shining city on a hill that has been a beacon of democracy and freedom for so many people.

People like Dherek, a Missouri native who grew up in a poor neighborhood, thinking he would never have a chance at success. As he grew up, he realized Democrats were doing nothing for his African-American community. He turned to the Republican Party and found a pathway for a better future, inspiring him to become a first-time volunteer for Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.

People like Priscilla in Texas, whose mother was told her baby would be born with physical abnormalities, but kept her anyway. Priscilla was born healthy and later became a passionate advocate for life, joining the “Hispanics for Trump” campaign near the Texas/Mexico border.

People like Ewa in Nevada, an immigrant from Poland who was so inspired by Donald Trump’s message of opportunity that she registered to vote for the first time when he announced he was running and she’s been volunteering for the Republican Party ever since.

There are millions of stories like these across the country – people from different walks of life who were deeply inspired by this President and this movement. Our movement.

The President said it best on Tuesday during his State of the Union: “This is our new American moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American Dream…If you work hard, if you believe in yourself, if you believe in America, then you can dream anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything…We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.
Together, we are rediscovering the American way. In America, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of the American life. Our motto is ‘In God we trust.’”


I hope you’ll join me as we keep working to keep our majorities – because our country, one nation under God, is one worth fighting for.

Thank you, God bless each of you, and God bless the United States of America.

RNC Statement On Georgia Special Election Victory

“I want to offer my warmest congratulations to Karen Handel on her victory,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “Tonight, the people of Georgia’s Sixth District overwhelmingly voted not only for Karen, but also for President Trump’s agenda of replacing our broken healthcare system, reforming an outdated tax code, and prioritizing infrastructure investment.

RNC Statement On President Trump’s Joint Address To Congress
 

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement at the conclusion of President Donald Trump’s first joint address to Congress:
 
“Tonight, President Trump charted a positive course for putting our country back on the path to growth and prosperity,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “Since his inauguration, our president has tirelessly worked to fulfill the promises he has made to the American people. His decisive actions have already begun the process of removing the onerous regulatory burden on American businesses, empowering women in the work force, and giving our brave men and women serving our country at home and overseas the assurance that we will provide the resources they need to succeed. The renewal of his commitment to championing an America First agenda of comprehensive tax reform, securing our borders, and repairing our broken healthcare system stands in sharp contrast to the disastrous policies of the last eight years. Voters across the country chose Donald Trump to bring change to Washington, and he is already delivering on the trust the American people put in him.”

RNC Statement On Jeff Sessions’ Confirmation As U.S. Attorney General

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement congratulating Senator Jeff Sessions on his confirmation as United States Attorney General:
 
“I am thrilled that the Senate has voted to confirm such a qualified public servant as Jeff Sessions to be our nation’s chief law enforcement officer,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “That Democrats would try to skew Sessions’ strong civil rights record and consistent adherence to rule of law in a partisan effort to block their colleague’s nomination shows their only commitment is to blindly obstructing this administration. This type of political posturing by Senate Democrats flies in the face of their duty to the American people. His long and lauded career proves Sen. Sessions is exactly the type of leader we need at the Department of Justice, and I am glad he will finally be able to take his place at the helm.”

These patriots are and will always will be our ‘greatest generation.’

RNC Statement On Tonight’s Historic Election Victories

 

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement celebrating tonight’s historic victories in electing Donald Trump president and maintaining Republican majorities in the House and Senate:

 
“Congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and our Republican majorities in the House and Senate! Tonight voters made one thing clear: they want Republicans to take the country in a bold new direction. Donald Trump’s candidacy inspired millions of Americans to join his quest to give a voice to those who have long felt silenced. For the past seventeen months Donald Trump has been distinguished by a steadfast commitment to bring change, and now he is going to take that enthusiasm to Washington D.C. to work for the American people as their president. For four years the RNC has been the only organization with a permanent field operation organizing in every battleground state and the investments by our party and supporters paid off in delivering the White House and keeping our House and Senate majorities. The RNC’s decision to devote resources to holding the House and Senate proved to be a vital strategic decision that was instrumental in delivering this victory. We are ready to introduce a Republican agenda of economic opportunity, strong national security, and individual freedom that will benefit all Americans.
 
“This is a big night for Republicans, a testament to what can be accomplished when our Party comes together, and the product of everything for which millions of volunteers and supporters have tirelessly labored for months and in some cases even years. With a Republican Congress firmly in place and Donald Trump in the White House, we can get to work on fixing Washington and bringing prosperity back to the American people.
 
“Hillary Clinton ran a hard-fought race and many of her supporters are everyday Americans passionate about making our great country a better place. While we disagree on many issues, enthusiasm for the public good is a hallmark of a healthy democracy and Americans who voted for Hillary Clinton should take pride in their principled commitments to our republic.”

RNC Statement On Hillary Clinton Asking Her Maid To Print Out Classified Emails

 

RNC Statement On Hillary Clinton Asking Her Maid To Print Out Classified Emails
 

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on reports that Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out emails containing classified information:

 

“We’ve known for months that Hillary Clinton egregiously mishandled classified information and jeopardized national security by setting up a secret email server but the revelations she asked her maid to print out classified material at her home gives the word reckless a whole new meaning. Asking someone with absolutely no security clearance to handle some of America’s most sensitive information is a recipe for disaster, and many have faced serious repercussions for far less. Americans going to vote on Tuesday should hold Clinton accountable for her pattern of dangerous and unethical behavior, and all the lies she has told to evade accountability for it.”

RNC Statement On FBI Letter To Congress Regarding Hillary Clinton

 

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on FBI Director James Comey’s letter to Congress on the Hillary Clinton email investigation:

“The FBI’s findings from its criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s secret email server were a damning and unprecedented indictment of her judgment. The FBI found evidence Clinton broke the law, that she placed highly classified national security information at risk and repeatedly lied to the American people about her reckless conduct. None of this changes the fact that the FBI continues to investigate the Clinton Foundation for corruption involving her tenure as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton should never be president.”
