The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), a political organization dedicated to electing Republicans to state legislative and executive positions, insists that the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on abortion is not the main issue that voters will take with them to the polls in the upcoming midterm elections. .

Speaking to Fox News Digital in an interview over the weekend, Andrew Romeo, RSLC’s director of communications, outlined the group’s mission and focus specifically on state legislative races ahead of the midterm elections.

When asked about the Supreme Court’s recent ruling repealing federal abortion protections granted in Roe v. Wade and returning the case to the states, Romeo insisted that internal findings from the RSLC indicated there would be little impact on the midterm elections with Americans staying laser-focused on the economy.

“The truth is we found it wouldn’t do much,” Romeo said. “The truth is, Joe Biden and his Democrats have wrecked the economy and will be held accountable next November. What we see as the most important issue for voters is the economy. They want elected state representatives who will fend off Joe Biden’s economic policies.”

“Not only is the economy the most important issue, but our findings show that voters overwhelmingly trust Republicans with regard to the economy,” he added.

Describing specific areas of focus by the RSLC ahead of the midterm elections, Romeo said there are “three clusters” in which some states fall depending on what is most needed in each region of the country.

“We’re trying to defend the republican majority in places where we have a legislative majority,” he said. “The big countries for that are places like Pennsylvania and New Hampshire [and] Michigan. “

Romeo said the USSR was providing support behind races in states where a republican majority could arise if economic conditions in America continued to deteriorate. “These are states like Colorado, there will be opportunities to turn rooms there, and Minnesota, where we currently hold the Senate, but we will go after the House this fall,” Romeo said.

Romeo said the RSLC is also looking to “make some gains in liberal strongholds,” describing states like Nevada and Maine where Democrats control both houses of Congress while voters who “want change” are tired of seeing state legislatures emulate the failed economic Joe Biden. . Policies.”

“It’s important to note that we’re kind of entering this election cycle with a limited number of places to pick because Republicans, historically, have been so powerful at the state legislature,” Romeo said, providing additional context beyond the targeted focus areas.

Romeo also promoted a six-figure RSLC ad campaign earlier this year targeting the Biden administration and those who regretted voting for him, saying he believed the ads “work.”

“We’ve been running an ad campaign over the past two months that we’ve called the Biden Regret ad campaign,” he said. “Basically, what we’re doing is targeting Biden voters in these Democratic states who are sorry to vote for Joe Biden, who are upset because they pay so much gas, who are upset about not being able to buy groceries, who are upset that their communities aren’t safe anymore. “

These ads were shown in seven Democratic-controlled states — Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, New York and Washington State — and directed voters to a website,, where they could sign up to receive updates from the RSLC on how to participate in their state’s legislative races.

Across the political spectrum, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC), in a joint statement with Fox News, insisted that Americans are “concerned” about the Supreme Court’s abortion decision and state-level Republican politicians “declaring open season for our basic rights.”

Gabrielle Chiu, DLCC’s vice president of communications, insisted that the issue would affect the upcoming elections.

“The court’s outdated and politically transparent decision strips women of the right to control their own bodies and will lead to needless death,” Chiu said. “This decision caters to a very vocal fringe minority and not eight in 10 Americans who support the legal right to abortion, while opening the door to attacks on the right to contraception and marriage equality.”

“State Democrats will respond to this attack on our freedom to decide whether and when we have a family by voting in large numbers in November,” she added.

Other national campaign committees, including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), also warn of the ruling’s implications for the midterm elections.

“Today’s decision dramatically escalates the stakes of the 2022 election, and we’re making sure Americans have the tools they need to channel their anger into action,” said Kristi Roberts, DSCC executive director.

The risks of the November elections “couldn’t be higher,” said Tim Persico, executive director of the DCCC.


Biden’s approval has continued to decline as Democrats in several states battlegrounds, both at the federal and state levels, try to hold or gain seats and move away from the widespread economic problems Americans face across the country.

Amid record inflation and gasoline prices, and in partnership with his difficult withdrawal from Afghanistan and his handling of the crisis along the southern border, Biden has seen his approval plummet among Americans.
