This week saw tight midterm election races, with Fox News reporting on Wednesday morning it was unclear who would ultimately control the House and Senate.
Yet rather than moderate their approach, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Jaime Harrison says the party is ready to “double down.”
DNC head: “We’re going to move forward”
According to Breitbart, Harrison made that pledge during an election night interview with ABC News host Diane Macedo.
The South Carolina Democrat remarks came after Macedo asked how his party would handle a victory by Republicans.
“Now, Jaime, if Republicans do take control of Congress, how will you re-examine Democrats’ strategy ahead of 2024?” Macedo said.
“Well, listen, we are going to continue to double down in terms of the efforts that this president and this vice president are trying to make in order to improve this country, to give relief to hardworking Americans,” Harrison replied.
“We’re going to continue to make sure that we’re reaching out to the base of our party, those who make up our party, and also reach out to the independents as well,” he continued, adding, “That’s going to be really, really important.”
“Again, we know the history of midterm elections and we know how tough it is in order to get through them. But we’re built for this and we’re going to move forward and we’re going to win this evening,” Harrison concluded.
Rep. Jim Jordan promises investigation of Biden DOJ
However, it will likely prove difficult for Democrats to provide meaningful support to President Joe Biden’s agenda should Republicans ultimately prevail.
Ranking House Judiciary Committee member Jim Jordan told Fox News host Martha MacCallum late last month that he will initiate an investigation into the Biden administration’s alleged politicization of the Justice Department and FBI if his party forms a majority.
“By far the most important (priority) is the Justice Department that is now political,” the Ohio Republican said. “You cannot have a political Justice Department and also have a free society, a free country.”
“So that is the most important thing, and we’re going to dig into this,” he continued. “Martha, we’ve had, and I’ve said this many times, we’ve had over 14 FBI agents come to us asking for whistleblower status talking about how political that place is.”
