RNC chair on election: We are on track to win the White House
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel expressed confidence that President Trump will win reelection this year as a tight race brews in the final sprint to Election Day.
“We’re on track to reelect the president and keep the Senate and win back to the House. Everything has been turning in our direction. We have a ground game. The energy is there,” she said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’s radio show on WABC 770 AM.
“We’re not taking our foot off the gas.”
McDaniel also said she thinks Trump will be able to handle former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, in next week’s debate in Ohio.
“His team is trying to figure out how he’s going to handle the president, who is a tough debater. Of course, Joe Biden has had 47 years. He’s been in politics his whole life. He’s done well on one-on-one debates with Bernie Sanders and Paul Ryan and Sarah Palin,” she said, referring to the 2008 and 2012 GOP vice presidential nominees.
McDaniel pointed to Biden’s policies on energy, taxes and more, adding, “he’s going to have to answer for some of these stances that … have taken him so far left.”
The confidence from McDaniel comes as polls show Trump trailing Biden nationally and in crucial swing states, albeit by narrowing margins.
The first presidential debated is slated to take place on Tuesday.
