Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), chairman of the National Republican Congressinoal Committee, noted all House seats flipped by Republicans defeating Democrat incumbents were won by minority, women, and military veteran candidates, offering his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.
“Every one of the seats we flipped so far has been a minority candidate, veteran and/or a female candidate,” Emmer said. “Pretty impressive.”
Democrats will have “the smallest majority” in the House of Representatives “since World War Two,” remarked Emmer.
