NRMCA Receives Republican Policy and Political Briefing
This past weekend, NRMCA participated in a policy and political briefing from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), including a 2020 election presentation. Tracking with election forecasts presented by NRMCA’s Government Affairs team at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks 2019 in Kissimmee, FL, the NRCC is targeting the 31 districts that President Trump won in 2016 but were lost in the 2018 midterms. Many of these lost seats were held by ready mix champions, including Reps. Steve Knight (R-CA), David Young (R-IA), Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and Bruce Poliquin (R-ME). In many of these districts, impeachment is unpopular – jeopardizing Democratic members running their first reelection campaigns.
NRMCA’s government affairs and political programs are non-partisan and work with and support pro-business, pro-ready mix Members of Congress and candidates, both Republican and Democratic, and NRMCA will continue to support candidates who are friends of the ready mixed concrete industry. NRMCA encourages all its members to be active in their state, local and federal elections, supporting pro-business and pro-ready mix candidates to build relationships with representatives in state capitals and in Washington.
