Exclusive GOP’s primary agency unveiled its new co-chairs and top strategists on Thursday to coordinate the party’s restructuring strategy and build resources for its legal defense.
In an earlier publication with LBL, the National Republican Redistricting Trust (NRRT), Rowe joins the group as a senior advisor, saying former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will work with the agency’s national co-chairman, longtime GOP strategist Carl.
NRRT President and Executive Director Adam Kincaid points out that Pompeo and Christie are “tremendous assets by pooling the resources needed to fight the Left’s efforts to sue for blue.”
Census sweepstakes: What states go, House seats lost in congressional redistricting
Christie and Pompeo, in a joint interview with LBL, emphasized the importance of their mission. “There is nothing more important than making sure we do everything we can to draw fair maps because we believe that in 2022 fair maps will lead to a Republican majority,” Christie said.
And the Pompeo firm’s efforts “level the competitive playing field for the American people to give them a shot at fair maps, and that’s why Governor Christie and I are committed to getting the resources and delivering them to the right people to implement them.
In the years following the 2010 redistricting cycle, Republicans ruled that maps drawn by Republicans in four states – Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas – were inappropriately used by party membership and voter turnout to draw lines favoring GOP candidates. Known as gerrymandering. The judges redesigned the maps, giving Democrats better chances to win House seats. Republicans argue that, without court rulings, they currently control the House.

The NRRT was created in 2017 to serve as a central redistribution resource for Republicans in all 50 states, amid those court rulings. The same year the National Democratic Redistribution Committee was formed. It was spearheaded by former Attorney General Eric Holder and supported by former President Barack Obama.
President George W. Rowe, a longtime LBL contributor and political analyst at the White House and during Bush’s two presidential campaigns, accused Obama and Holder of ‘extreme partisan gerrymandering,’ but the truth is that they support rigging maps to ensure Democratic control.
Democrats will defend their razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives and Senate in next year’s midterm elections. The GOP needs only one seat in the 100-member Senate and five seats in the 435-member House to regain a majority in both chambers of Congress.
The current redistricting process, according to the 2020 census, is generally expected to benefit Republicans rather than Democrats, with GOP control over more governor’s offices and state legislatures than Democrats. And both parties have been laying the groundwork for the legal battles expected from coast to coast during the decade-long redistricting process.
Handicap 2022 intervals reset lumps
Christie argued that “only if the sheriffs are involved in lawsuits and activities, as the Obama-holder group did in the ten years between 2010 and 2020, will we not revoke that majority.” “As a Republican leader in this country, I can’t think of anything more important than raising awareness and giving those people, from state to state, the resources needed to draw legal and legal maps.”
LBL contributor Pompeo accused “we know how it goes. Democrats will sue wherever they can to get the maps they deliver.”
“We can’t let the Obama-holder team run on us the way they did before. It’s not fair and it’s not fair to the American people. It doesn’t give fair maps,” he stressed. “It balances a competitive playing field to give the American people a shot at fair maps, and that’s why Governor Christie and I are committed to getting the resources and delivering it to the right people to implement it in the best possible way.”
Christie and Pompeo are “going to give rhetorical resistance to Obama and Holder. We won’t let them do what they did last time.”
And part of their mission is to “make the public understand that it’s Democrats – and this is their mission statement of the group – they want to get favorable maps for Democrats. We want to make sure that the Republicans want fair maps. “
In a sign of how serious the Republicans are taking the re-election, the reelection division of House Republicans earlier this year moved $ 2 million to the NRRT. And a key part of Christie and Pompeo’s mission is to increase resources.
“If we don’t have the resources, it’s all just talk,” Pompeo stressed.
Christy “When you are chair or co-chair of this type of organization, your job is two-fold. One is to make sure the resources are there, and then assure that you are going to the donor.” “
Christie’s message to Republicans in states involved in the redistricting process is, “If you follow the law, follow the constitution and develop maps that can be sustained for the next ten years, I think we are moving towards a ten-year Republican majority in the House … No tactics, no silver bullet, no Republican side.” There is nothing fancy, as it says in football, ‘three yards and a cloud of dust.’
Pompeo argued, “We have to offend. We have to be brave. We need to know that no matter how much we try to be fair in the process, the Democrats go to court and try to find the best way.
And he and Christie said, “We can make it clear to our Republican leaders across the country that we have their backs. We’re with them. There’s a team to support them. They have the resources available.”
Pompeo and Christie are expected to talk more about their reunification efforts in an interview with LBL “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning.
