In the White House, the House, and the Senate, they are generally referred to as the 18. They are the 18 Representatives who were elected in the districts with voters who supported Biden against Trump. Now the President and his aides plan to target them and extract a few vital voters in the 2024 presidential elections.
The White House and the House Democrats consider them a lifeline to a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2024 elections. The Democratic Party is using its resources to compel these Republican members to part ways with the party on several key issues. The White House also plans to let the Democratic Party-leaning supporters know the details if there are any deviations.
One of the Representatives, Mike Lawler of New York, edged past a 5-term winner in a district that was overwhelmingly Biden-leaning, but which is presently led by a GOP member. He said that the House has to come forward as much as they do if the spirit of bipartisanship was to be followed.
The White House Is Dangling Multiple Perks For The 18 Republicans
The biggest trial is the projected conflict over the national debt ceiling, scheduled to take place in spring. Congressional liaisons in the White House who have fanned out all over Capitol Hill say they would try to go beyond basics.
The White House would try to get bills passed over cancer care, veteran care, mental health, and the opioid crisis. These are items being considered a part of the outreach and unity agenda. It may be included as part of Biden’s address a week later.
The House is dangling perks like an invitation to the US president’s box, a place in overseas official delegations, and sit-downs at the Oval Office. There is also a planned stick policy by the White House of degrading Republicans who side with the GOP.
