Republicans plan to win House by appealing to women, people of color. Because that will happen

WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 04: U.S. President Donald Trump (C) congratulates House Republicans after they passed legislation aimed at repealing and replacing ObamaCare, during an event in the Rose Garden at the White House, on May 4, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Untethered to any kind of reality, House Republican leaders are of the belief that if they find enough women and people of color to run next year, they will recapture the House. They want to repeat what Democrats achieved in 2018 in bringing the most diverse majority to the House in the nation’s history. All while full-throatedly supporting the white supremacist in the Oval Office.

With just 13 women out of 197 Republican members, and only one Republican person of color (Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio), there’s plenty of room for improvement. So far they’ve found two candidates, “a Republican woman in the Oklahoma state Senate and a black political novice from Houston with Iraq combat experience and three Ivy League degrees on his resume.” Rep. Kevin McCarthy, House minority leader (who also believes Trump is on Putin’s payroll), says, “You will see a party that’s reflective of the entire nation. That would mean from gender to race to others, but it will also show that we can compete in every single district.”

Democrats got more than four million more votes across the nation than Republicans in 2018, so McCarthy’s plan has some flaws. Which include having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket.
