WASHINGTON, DC – With the mid-term election 119 days away, The Ripon Society held a luncheon discussion with two strategists who are leading the effort to help the GOP retain control of Congress.

The strategists were Chris Hansen, who serves as Executive Director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and John Rogers, who serves as Executive Director of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

“This is a critical election to say the last,” stated Jim Conzelman, the President and CEO of The Ripon Society. “When the American people turned out to vote in 2016, they cast their ballots for a common sense, conservative agenda. In less than two years, we are seeing the results. Unemployment is at an historic low. Hardworking Americans are seeing higher take-home pay. And burdensome federal regulations are being reined in. In short, we are seeing that elections matter.

“We appreciate Chris and John joining us this afternoon to talk about the mid-term elections this November, and their work to make sure Republicans retain their majorities in the House and Senate next year.”

According to Conzelman, a crowd of nearly 100 people turned out for the discussion. Conzelman further noted that the discussion was the 43rd event hosted by The Ripon Society so far in 2018. Upcoming events include a discussion on July 12th with U.S. Senators Steve Daines (MT), Ron Johnson (WI), and David Perdue (GA) on the U.S.-China relationship, and a discussion on July 19th with the Majority Whip of the House of Representatives, the Honorable Steve Scalise (LA-1).

The Ripon Society is a public policy organization that was founded in 1962 and takes its name from the town where the Republican Party was born in 1854 — Ripon, Wisconsin. One of the main goals of The Ripon Society is to promote the ideas and principles that have made America great and contributed to the GOP’s success. These ideas include keeping our nation secure, keeping taxes low and having a federal government that is smaller, smarter and more accountable to the people.
