“Americans are watching Joe Biden and House Democrats continue to implode, and conservatives are becoming more fired up for this November’s election,” the House Republican Conference chairwoman continued.
“As the historic 2022 Red Wave builds and more Democrats run for the hills, I will continue to support strong, American First candidates as we work to Fire Nancy Pelosi once and for all and SAVE AMERICA!” she said.
