Tuesday during a radio appearance, Republican National Committee deputy communications director Cassie Smedile acknowledged her organization was targeting Democrats not just in districts President Donald Trump won in 2016 but also ones he narrowly lost to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as well.
Smedile told Huntsville, AL radio WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” that the goal was to point out these Democrats did not live up to their billing when running in the 2018 midterm elections, especially as it pertains to the congressional Democrats’ effort to impeach Trump.
“There are over 30 Democrats in districts that Donald Trump won.
If you add in districts that Hillary Clinton narrowly won that previously Republicans have won, now you’re looking at over 60 districts.
I’m going to work with Donald Trump when possible.’ And you know what?
