LANSING, Mich., November 11, 2020 – Democrats suffered massive losses down ballot during the 2020 election cycle, and nowhere was that more apparent than in the significant reduction of the Democrat majority in the U.S. House. The Michigan Republican Party was proud to play its part in putting the pressure on Democrats going into the 2022 election.
Going into this year’s election, Democrats held a 14-seat majority in the U.S. House, but when all the votes are counted, Democrats will have lost anywhere from 9-12 seats to Republicans, giving them their slimmest majority in decades. The MIGOP played its part here in Michigan, flipping the 3rd District with the victory of Peter Meijer, electing Lisa McClain in the open 10th District, and holding onto all currently held Republican seats in the state.
“The people of Michigan and citizens across our nation rejected the socialist House Democrat agenda on election night and in 2022 Nancy Pelosi will lose the speakers gavel once and for all.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “Our record-breaking ground game this election has laid the foundation for Republican victories across Michigan in 2022 and beyond.”
