Worshipping at the altar of Trump, new GOP House campaign chair says everything's fine

Minnesota Rep. Tom Emmer’s first few weeks leading the GOP’s House campaign arm are sure off to a great start. Last week, New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, pointing out that she would be just one of 13 Republican women serving in the House, announced that she was leaving her leadership post at the NRCC and building her own operation to recruit Republican women to run. Emmer responded to this by telling a reporter that Stefanik’s plan to help women in primaries was “a mistake,” a comment that Politico reports immediately caused a firestorm in the GOP caucus. Emmer quickly tried to clarify that he only meant that it was a “mistake” for the committee to get involved in primaries in the first place, but that didn’t stop several Republican House members from publicly rebuking him. Stefanik herself tweeted out Emmer’s “mistake” comments with her own caption: “NEWSFLASH I wasn’t asking for permission.” There’s since been a slight rapprochement. The congresswoman later said that “Emmer’s tone has changed and has been a bit more respectful and encouraging of my efforts.” An unnamed NRCC aide even assured Politico that Emmer would hold a candid “listening session” to figure out what went wrong in 2018. It sounds like Emmer could indeed use a candid “listening session” to learn about what led to the 2018 blue wave, because he still doesn’t seem to have any idea. In a new interview, Emmer told the National Journal, “There’s a narrative that people are trying to build out there that somehow there’s been this shift, this political realignment in the suburbs.” But, claims Emmer, “That’s not true. It isn’t there.” That would come to a surprise to the many suburban Republicans who lost last month, including in ancestrally red Orange County, California, which will send its first all-Democratic delegation to Congress since the New Deal era. So what does Emmer think happened?
