RNC's McDaniel: Dems 'Rejected Soundly' in Ga Special Election

Fox News' "America's Newsroom"

Democrats were "rejected soundly" in Georgia's special election, despite spending $23 million in an attempt to capture the state's 6th District congressional seat, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Wednesday.

"Republicans in Georgia sent a message that they want people to come to Washington and work with this president and help his agenda," McDaniel told Fox News' "America's Newsroom," but she did not agree the narrow victory represented a tightening gap among voters.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump won by double digits numbers in both Georgia and South Carolina, but the two Republican candidates, did not mark high margins with their victories Tuesday. Still, McDaniel said she is not concerned.

"All [Democrats] are talking about right now is obstruction, resistance, and going against the president," she said. "Republicans are talking about jobs, and wages, and helping President Trump, and repealing and replacing Obamacare, and that's what voters want across the country."

Republicans had a "robust ground game" in Georgia and were knocking on doors daily, McDaniel said.

"We know our voters, and continue to build on that, and we think we can pick up Senate seats in 2018," she said. "What voters or the media needs to recognize is that Donald Trump's message is resonating."

McDaniel said she is also optimistic about the new Senate healthcare bill coming out Thursday.

"There's going to be ample time to review it," she said, and she hopes everyone, Democrats and Republicans will work on it.

"By 2018, you can have 40 percent of the counties in America with only one insurer," McDaniel said. "That gives insurers the ability to raise premiums. This is something that has to be fixed."
