The Republican National Committee just met in Washington D.C. and coming off of the President’s state of the Union address, the party was energized. The RNC gathering kicked off on Jan. 31 at the Washington Hilton and conclude two days later. During that time committee members heard from both President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Lucien Smith, Chairman of the Mississippi GOP attended the meeting and said that the focus for the party is on the mid-term elections.

“I think we are going to see some real effort from the Democrats to try to pick up seats in the midterm elections, but the Republican National Committee, the Republican party is very well funded, very well prepared,” said Lucien Smith. “They have invested millions of dollars in a robust data program that is going to allow us to have a very strong ground game as we move into the general elections in the fall, and so what we saw was a party that is ready to do battle for congress.

Smith added that in Mississippi the race for the third congressional district will be a competitive one.

“I think whichever one wins, is going to be very well positioned to be the winner in November, we are going to make sure that we are in a position to help him or her to the full extent of the parties abilities, but I think that it is going to be a good year for Republicans in Mississippi,” Smith said. “We are a very red state, I think we are a state that is very enthusiastic because we are Trump country and we are going to be eager to send people to Washington who are going to continue to work with the President to make America great again.”
