Launches New Report Showing Vulnerable Swing District Members Voting in Lockstep with Marjorie Taylor Greene
WASHINGTON – As reported today in Politico’s Morning Score, MoveOn Political Action unveiled a core part of its 2024 political program to win back the House. The group is targeting 18 vulnerable Republican House members from districts Biden carried in 2020—deemed the
“Complicit Caucus.” The seven-figure program involves high-level organizing efforts with its 600,000+ members in these districts. MoveOn members will mobilize in-district to engage in actions, constituent office visits, relational organizing, phonebanking, canvassing, texting, and other events with allies. MoveOn will also pursue polling, research, paid media, and social media campaigning to flip these districts.
Kicking off the program is the release of a new analysis of key votes from the first 100 days of the 118th Congress, which shows that the 18 House Republicans from swing districts Biden carried in 2020 have voted in lockstep with Marjorie Taylor Greene.
“While these House members try to pass themselves off as moderates to their constituents and the media, they are in fact enabling and pushing the MAGA agenda in Washington,” said MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting. “They are the Complicit Caucus, voting with the radical right wing and causing real damage to our families, communities, and country.”
The 18 House Republicans Representing Swing Districts that Biden Won in 2020
Rep. Don Bacon (NE-2)
Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-5)
Rep. Juan Ciscomani (AZ-6)
Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (NY-4)
Rep. John Duarte (CA-13)
Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1)
Rep. Mike Garcia (CA-27)
Rep. Thomas Kean Jr. (NJ-07)
Rep. Jen Kiggans (VA-2)
Rep. Young Kim (CA-40)
Rep. Nicholas LaLota (NY-1)
Rep. Michael Lawler (NY-17)
Rep. Marcus Molinaro (NY-19)
Rep. George Santos (NY-3)
Rep. David Schweikert (AZ-1)
Rep. Michelle Steel (CA-45)
Rep. David Valadao (CA-22)
Rep. Brandon Williams (NY-22)
MoveOn’s analysis focused on 36 key votes the 118th Congress took on House governance (leadership, rules, committees) and on final passage legislation that deeply divided the chamber. Voting behavior not included in this analysis includes procedural votes (motions to recommit, suspend the rules, or adjourn; ordering the previous question; quorum), votes on amendments, and votes on legislation that passed with sweeping bipartisan support, such as The PRC is Not a Developing Country Act.
A review of these 36 key votes finds that the 18 House Republicans from swing districts that Biden carried in 2022 voted 100% with ultra-MAGA Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene on 32 of them (see chart below). Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick from southeastern Pennsylvania broke from Rep. Greene and the rest of the swing district Republicans three times, and Rep. Mike Lawler from the Westchester suburbs of New York broke from Rep. Greene and the rest of the swing district Republicans once.
