Features Numerous National Leaders Who First Served At The State Level
Washington, DC — Fresh off a 2020 election in which it overcame over $500 million in combined Democrat state spending to hold all 59 Republican-controlled legislative chambers, flip two more, and add two trifectas, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) today released a new video highlighting its mission for 2021-2022 and beyond.
“The Future,” the 90-second video, details the two main goals of the RSLC: electing state Republicans this cycle who will hold the line against Democrat-controlled Washington, and building the bench of the future Republican leaders of tomorrow. The video illustrates the latter by featuring numerous national leaders who first served at the state level.
“With Democrats in complete control of Washington and looking to expand their radical liberal agenda to every corner of the nation, electing strong conservatives in the states has never been more important,” said RSLC President Dee Duncan. “We are looking forward to the opportunities we have to hold our narrow majorities as well as continue to play offense because we know that the future of the Republican Party depends on the success we have this cycle.”
In 2020, radical liberals and leftists mega donors spent billions to transform America into a socialist utopia.
Democrats took control of Washington.
But Republicans in the states stood up and won big.
Now, state Republicans are the last line of defense against a new era of big liberal government: Higher taxes, reckless spending, government run health care, radical environmentalism.
Washington liberals and their Democrat allies in the states want a national transformation. At the Republican State Leadership Committee, we’re leading the fight to stop them.
We recruit, train, and support Republican candidates from every walk of life in every corner of the country, so that businesses grow, children learn, families stay safe, and our nation thrives. It’s up to us to make sure Republicans have the tools and resources they need to run smart, cutting edge campaigns that win where it matters most. And when our leaders succeed here, they’re prepared to succeed anywhere.
The future of the Republican party and the future of our country starts right here at the RSLC.
