The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a national political organization. The committee focuses on building and maintaining a Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.[1]

The committee was founded in 1866.[1] According to the NRCC website, the committee:

."..supports the election of Republicans to the House through direct financial contributions to candidates and Republican Party organizations; technical and research assistance to Republican candidates and Party organizations; voter registration, education and turnout programs; and other Party-building activities."[1]

Leadership

The NRCC is governed by its chairman, Rep. Greg Walden (OR-2), and an executive committee elected by Republican members of the U.S. House. The committee's daily operations are overseen by its executive director, Liesl Hickey.[2]

2014 elections

Petition

The NRCC circulated a petition directed at House Democrats to reaffirm their commitment to the Affordable Care Act. The controversial act was expected to impact the 2014 mid-term elections. The petition was meant to draw negative attention to the Democrats that voted for and continue to support the act. It read, "I have been a strong and consistent supporter of ObamaCare," the petition begins. "The law may be incredibly unpopular as people in my district are kicked off their health care plans and watch as their premiums and costs skyrocket, but I still support this law — and commit that I will continue to support it through Election Day."[3]

Patriot Program

The Patriot Program was designed to help raise money and assist vulnerable incumbents who sought re-election.[4]

The following table displays the current members of the Patriot Program.
