Republican National Committee (RNC) chair Ronna McDaniel said Friday that the GOP wins in this week’s elections in Virginia showed that the party’s get-out-the-vote efforts have been successful. She also said that the committee plans to scale up its efforts ahead of the 2022 midterms, when Republicans hope to take back the House and Senate.

“Virginia was a great test run for next year and it was successful,” McDaniel told Fox News during an interview at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting. 

“We had 120 staff on the ground,” she said. “We had 13 offices and we were really, really, effective at finding unexpected votes. We found 100,000 unexpected voters, which was a key factor in winning.”

With the help of the committee, Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe to become governor of Virginia, where Republicans hadn’t won a statewide election in a dozen years.
