Statement from DCCC Chairman Steve Israel on the House Election Results
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement on tonight’s elections results.
“After 2010, Republicans thought they put Democrats on defense forever, but tonight the Tea Party wave was reversed. Despite Republicans’ predictions that they would significantly expand their majority after the wave that swept them in power, like Democrats did in 2008, we didn’t let it happen. We took the fight to Republicans all across the country and won at least 25 Republican or new seats – beating the expectations.
“On everything in the Democrats’ control we won, outraising, outrecruiting and outmobolizing our opponents. And at the polls, voters chose Democrats.”
“Tonight, we officially began rolling back the Tea Party wave.”
