House Dem calls for course correction or GOP could win 2022 majority


The House Democrat in charge of making sure the party retains control of the chamber after next year’s midterm elections is warning that a course correction is needed or they could find themselves the minority again — with current polling showing the Democrats would lose the majority if elections were held now. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told a closed-door lunch last week that if the midterms were held now, Republicans would win control of the House, Politico reported Tuesday. Maloney (D-NY) advised the gathering that Democrats have to embrace and promote President Biden’s agenda because it registers with swing voters. “We are not afraid of this data … We’re not trying to hide this,” Tim Persico, executive director of the Maloney-chaired DCC, ​told Politico in an interview. “If [Democrats] use it, we’re going to hold the House. That’s what this data tells us, but we gotta get in action,” ​Persico said. M​aloney, in an interview with NPR, said ​issues like climate change, infrastructure, the expanded child tax credits, immigration policies and election reforms will attract voters next fall.
