Historically, the party holding the White House loses seats in the midterm elections, Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel conceded Wednesday, but she said the committee is working hard to keep that from happening in 2018.

"That's why the RNC has been on the ground from the beginning of this year," McDaniel told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "We're already in 21 states working our field program. We've raised unprecedented amounts of money that we're putting into these states early, building out our program so that we can win in these midterms."

Republicans also are going into the midterm elections from a point of strength during President Donald Trump's first year, she added.

"Unemployment is at a 17-year low [and] consumer confidence is at a record high," said McDaniel. "You look at the Dow, you look at the tax cuts, what it's going to mean for the middle class, more money in their paychecks. We are delivering on promises we have made. We have an accomplishment column that's very large."

Meanwhile, Democrats have "done nothing this year," said McDaniel, and that will cause the party's candidates trouble in the midterm elections.

According to polls, however, the message may not be getting through, so the RNC is in battleground states early to speak with voters.

"[Sen.] Joe Manchin went home to West Virginia to a big banner that said 'we'll remember in November,'" said McDaniel. "Because of our field program, we're on the ground in unprecedented levels before midterm election. We'll make sure voters remember in November that Democrats voted no across the board, no middle class tax cuts."

The economy is also continuing to grow, she said, and as the GDP grows and jobs and wages come back, the committee will make sure that voters know the changes have come under Trump's leadership,

"The base of our party is so pleased with the president right now," said McDaniel. "You look at the judicial appointments, you look at what he has done for veterans. Our military is getting a pay raise for the first time. Our country is safer. Our economy's doing better. Jobs are coming back. Wages are going up. I just can't imagine anyone running against a record like this."
