Rep. Richard Hudson, the head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, is projecting confidence ahead of the 2024 elections that Republicans will gain House seats.

“The environment is really strong for Republicans right now and we’ve got great candidates,” Hudson (R-N.C.) told reporters as the House left for the holidays. “We’re gonna grow the majority.”

He added: “Biden’s polling low everywhere.”

In the 2022 cycle, confident projections of a “red wave” of GOP gains ultimately didn’t come to pass, though Republicans did narrowly regain control of the House. The chamber is currently led by Republicans with a narrow 221-213 advantage. (Former Rep. George Santos’ seat is vacant after his expulsion.)

Hudson went on to say he’s “disappointed” by a decision this week from New York’s highest court on redistricting that could net Democrats several additional seats in the Empire State.

“We’ll see how it plays out,” he said.
