The New York Republican Committee on Monday launched a new effort to blast the impeachment drive in Congress, appearing outside of the district office of Democratic Rep. Max Rose to give a counter narrative.
Rose last week became the latest Democrat from a district carried by President Donald Trump in 2016 to back the impeachment proceeding amid allegations he has sought to influence foreign governments, including China and Ukraine, to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

“Max Rose completely flip-flopped on his position, saying impeachment was bad for the country, yet the moment he was threatened with a primary from an AOC-wannabe, he caved like a cheap suit and sold out his constituents,” said Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy, referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“We are putting Max Rose and the rest of his congressional comrades on notice that we are organized and ready to harness the support for President Trump to send them packing next November,” Langworthy added.
Dovetailing with this effort has been a series of TV ads launched by the Republican National Committee this month knocking Democratic Rep. Antonio Delgado for backing impeachment, part of a $2 million ad buy in key districts considered competitive in 2020.
