The Republican establishment is not ready to concede the House majority, but they are not ready for a fight, either.
And that fight is taking place not in Washington, DC, but in conservative circles.
“This is the time to win,” said Matt Schlapp, former chairman of the American Conservative Union and former chief strategist for President Donald Trump.
“The House is the most important body in our democracy.
We need to win.”
The House is not a partisan body.
It is a deliberative body, where lawmakers decide the fate of legislation on the House floor.
The Republicans’ majority will be the only body in the United States that is not controlled by either a Democrat or a Republican.
But if Republicans lose control of the House, they would not only lose the majority in the Senate, but also in the White House.
They would not be able to control either chamber’s agenda.
That means the GOP would lose the presidency and the House.
“Republicans can’t be complacent.
They’ve got to do something.
We can’t let them get away with it.
They’re going to lose, and they’re going, ‘You know what?
We’re going for it,'” said Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), the longest-serving House member and one of the few members of the GOP to hold elected office in the last decade.
“If we lose the House and we’re in a minority, then they are going to blame the Republicans and say, ‘What was that all about?'”
The Senate is even more dire, with a 48-48 Republican majority.
The Senate has 60 senators, which is just slightly less than the House’s 62.
And the GOP controls just three Senate seats.
“We’re going after a Senate that has 60 votes.
They have to get 60 votes in order to even get into the Senate,” said Rep, Mark Meadows (R).
“We can’t allow that to happen.”
Amash, who is also a former speaker of the Freedom Caucus, has called for the creation of a conservative caucus.
It’s been a long time coming.
The first House Republicans elected in 1976 were moderate Republicans.
Now, it’s more like the Tea Party: The Tea Party, founded by former congressman Mark Meadows, has taken the Senate and House by storm.
They believe that Republicans should not take up legislation, that the GOP should govern itself, and that the government should not be run by the federal government.
The Tea Parties agenda has not changed much since the last time they controlled the House in 2013.
But they’ve made a big splash.
Tea Party members have been a major factor in Republicans’ gains in the House since the election of President Donald J. Trump in November.
The tea party helped make Trump a successful candidate in the primaries, but the group has never made it to the Senate.
But now, that could change.
“It’s going to be very interesting to see how far the Tea Parties reach,” Amash said.
“How many people are going out and saying, ‘We’re the new Tea Party’?
What are they going to do?
We’ve got a lot of power.
It will be interesting to watch that.”
But that power could be hard to maintain in the new Congress.
In the past, members of Congress have been willing to bend to their party, but now, they’re willing to buck the rules and vote for legislation that is popular with the Tea Partiers.
“I think the Tea partiers have a very good case for a majority in Congress,” said Greg Walden, a Republican strategist and former adviser to Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.).
“They have the ability to push the envelope.
I think that’s what the conservative movement needs to do.”
The next battle could be over the size of the congressional delegation.
Last year, the House Republican Caucus was a mere 2,000 members.
Now it’s around 3,000.
The House Republican leadership will have to decide whether to keep the current 2,100-member number, or increase it to 3,200 members, or perhaps even 4,000-4,500 members.
But the House GOP leadership will likely be able count on one more member to be a swing vote, which could mean a vote for the moderate members of their caucus.
“There are a lot more moderate members than they realize, and if the moderates don’t vote for something, they can go back to the leadership and say: ‘Why did you do that?
Why did you keep us here?'”
Amash pointed to a story he read on Breitbart News earlier this month.
“What the Breitbart story said is that the Republicans have been very conservative, but if we have a vote to kill the budget, they are absolutely going to vote to keep it,” Amess said.
If the Tea party were to succeed in changing the House rules, they could change the makeup of the majority and possibly the president.
If conservatives can win over moderates, they might also change the rules of the
