“The RNC, we don’t pick the candidates. The voters​ ​do. We don’t do the messaging. That’s up to the campaigns. But we do​ ​do turnout. The one thing we’re seeing right now is that turnout was sky high, but Republicans didn’t vote for every Republican candidate​,” She said.

“Trump endorsed ​[Majewski] ​because he had a big display in his front yard for Trump in the 2020 election. Trump had seen it and said, ‘That’s my guy.’ [Majewski] claimed to be a combat veteran. Turned out he was never in combat​,” Rove stated.

​”​We had time after time after time where we gave away seats like that​,” he added. ​
