HMP Statement on Democratic House Victory
November 7, 2018
Washington, DC – House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly released the following statement regarding Democrats winning control of the House of Representatives. House Majority PAC and its C4 ally Patriot Majority USA raised approximately $113 million to invest in House races, and the group shepherded well over $200 million of independent expenditure spending among a coalition of progressive groups to support Democrats in the fight for control of the House.
“This is a victory for democracy. This is a victory for hardworking families. And, this a clear rejection of the disastrous Republican economic agenda. Over the past two years, we’ve witnessed Americans from all across the country and all walks of life step up, get involved, and take action to build a better nation. We’ve seen a tremendously impressive array of Americans from diverse backgrounds put themselves forward to run for office and take up the fight for working families. And despite inherent obstacles, Democrats have run winning campaigns by focusing on the kitchen-table issues that matter most to voters. House Majority PAC was proud to do its part – working with an incredible coalition of allies and spending strategically and efficiently to support Democratic candidates and fight back against a frantic flood of GOP spending and misleading attacks in order to help ensure this historic win.”
