Republican Governors Association unveils new video series ‘Red State Recovery’

FIRST ON FOX: The group dedicated to electing Republican gubernatorial candidates and re-electing incumbent GOP governors is launching a new video series that aims to show states governed by Republican governors have fared better than states run by Democratic governors in recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Republican Governors Association (RGA) says the first installment of its “Red State Recovery” series, which was shared first with Fox News on Wednesday, spotlights how GOP governors “took innovative and historic action to hold up their states’ economies and enact meaningful polices that have protected small businesses, cut taxes, modernized regulations, and invested in their state.”

THE RGA HAULS IN A RECORD $75 MILLION IN FUNDRAISING LAST YEAR

The initial video features Govs. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, Brian Kemp of Georgia, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Greg Gianforte of Montana, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Doug Ducey of Arizona, and Brad Little of Idaho.

Ricketts, an RGA co-chair, emphasizes in the video that “the pandemic really highlighted the difference between Democrat’s policies and Republican-led state policies.”

Kemp, who faces a challenging re-election this year, takes aim at President Biden and soaring inflation under the Democratic president’s watch, saying “this 40-year high of Biden inflation, it is literally killing people when they go to the grocery store and it’s killing them when they go to the gas pump.”

And DeWine, who’s also running for a second term, claims that “spending at the federal level by the Biden administration is certainly driving this.”

Ducey, another RGA co-chair, highlights that in the last year, we actually had the largest tax cut in Arizona state history: a 2.5% flat tax across the board, for every Arizonan.”

Gianforte touts that in “Montana, because we’ve enacted pro-business policies, we’re seeing people return to work. We have more people working than ever before in the history of the state.”

And Reynolds, who’s also running for re-election, emphasizes that “Republican governors across this country are taking on big issues, they’re making tough decisions, and most importantly what you see coming out of our states is they’re getting things done.”

There are currently 28 GOP governors and 22 Democratic governors. Thirty-six states hold gubernatorial elections in November.

In announcing their new video series, RGA communications director Jesse Hunt argued that “while Democrat governors follow along with Joe Biden’s out-of-touch liberal agenda, Republican governors have put in the work to prioritize the issues that really matter to voters heading to the ballot box in November.”
