Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel shared her biggest concerns for Republicans out on the campaign trail, on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, and said health care remains a top priority for candidates across the board.
McDaniel said the Democrats’ false narrative on pre-existing conditions is one of the most glaring issues for the GOP heading into the elections.
“The Democrats have really tried to fear monger on health care and tried to tell people that Republicans are going to take pre-existing conditions,” McDaniel said. “It is flat out false. The president has been on the stump refuting that.” (RELATED: CNN’s Chris Cuomo Tells RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel What Mansplaining Is)
“We have candidates sharing stories of their family members, of their kids, of their mothers who have pre-existing conditions — of course we would never take away that right,” she continued. “That’s one of the things that the Democrats are trying to do. They try and scare their voters.”
McDaniel said the GOP will continue to run on the strong economy, higher take-home pay and its handling of the opioid crisis, while relying on President Donald Trump’s campaign skills to put the party over the top.
“We’re running on higher wages, more jobs, our economy doing well — taking on the opioid crisis. I mean there are so many things that have come out of these first two years of President Trump and Republican leadership. And we’re saying to voters, ‘Do you want to go back?'” she said, adding:
“We need to continue this comeback. There is so much at stake. And of course we have the number one campaigner on the trail, President Trump, energizing our base.”
