It’s no secret that Republicans are determined to win in 2022.
That might seem far away, but every day will count given Democrats are trying everything in their power to force their radical agenda on Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is still pushing through toxic spending bills to appease the far-left, is already in hot water.
House Democrats now only have a 2-seat majority and the new 2020 census means that Democrats will be losing several congressional seats.
Now, Republicans are making it clear Pelosi’s days are numbered by making a new record.
The National Republican Congressional Committee reported that it shattered the record for its largest-ever off-election-year monthly haul by $3.6 million.
According to a news release, the NRCC raised $19.1 million in March and $33.7 million for the first quarter of 2021.
The House campaign arm of the GOP further stated it ended the quarter “with $29.7M cash on hand which is a 57% increase over the same point last cycle.”
The NRCC also said it is debt-free and had an average grassroots donation of $32.70.
“Republican voters are motivated to fire Nancy Pelosi, stop Democrats’ socialist agenda and take back the House,” NRCC spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the NRCC’s counterpart, waited a week after the Republicans to report its first-quarter fundraising numbers.
The DCCC said in a Tuesday news release it had raised $34.1 million in the first quarter, with $30.3 million cash on hand, coming up with slightly more than the NRCC in both categories.
However, the DCCC’s first-quarter filing is not online yet with Federal Election Commission, but as of February, the committee reported $11 million in debt.
In last November’s election, Republicans won every district listed as a toss-up by The New York Times, and some it predicted Democrats would win by a narrow margin.
In the process, the GOP flipped 15 seats with an overall net gain of 12 seats.
The Democrat Party and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just got some tough news.
After the 2020 Census count, some blue states are going to lose seats as several red states are set to gain seats in the House of Representatives.
The Republican stronghold of Texas is set to gain two seats. The purple state of Colorado, the red states of North Carolina and Florida, and the blue state of Oregon will each add one more seat. And red Montana will add another district.
Because Republicans control so many of the state legislatures Democrats are concerned about the lines being drawn in favor of the GOP.

“Redistricting could likely determine who controls the House of Representatives in 2022, but also going into the next decade,” Nate Persily, a redistricting expert from Stanford Law School said.
“Texas will gain the most new seats in the U.S. House of Representatives under new Census numbers released Monday, while states in the Northeast and Midwest will lose seven seats, shifting some political clout to Republican strongholds before the 2022 midterms,” Sen. John Cornyn said on Twitter.

As one liberal Twitter user pointed out: With the census, polling, and history of how elections go for the party out of power, it’s all but guaranteed that Republicans will win back the House in 2022.
“Thinking about balance of power in the House…If history is any indicator, Democrats are poised to lose a few seats in 2022 already. Add in changes due to census count, the slim 218-212 majority may be that much harder for Dems to keep,” News Nation Now reporter Joe Khalil said.
