NYGOP Launches Statewide “Stop the Madness” Tour Targeting Congressional Democrats

“We will hold them accountable for putting the radical left over their constituents in this endless impeachment sham”


Staten Island, NY–October 7th…In conjunction with Trump Victory, New York Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy today kicked off a statewide anti-impeachment “Stop the Madness” tour in front of Rep. Max Rose’s district office on Staten Island.
Chairman Langworthy will travel across New York State to districts that President Trump won in 2016 to target congressional Democrats and rally voters opposed to impeachment. He will make stops in NY-18, NY-19, NY-22 and NY-27.
“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 NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy. “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.”
“Plain and simple: Max Rose lied to his constituents,” said Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar. “He got swept up in the midterm wave by selling the people of the 11th congressional district a false bill of goods, but now that they know the truth about him, he will be swept out of office in 2020 with President Trump at the top of the ticket.”
Staten Island Republican Chairman Brendan Lantry said, “In 2018 Max Rose talked about changing the way things are done in Washington. Instead of changing Washington, Washington changed Max.”
The counter-impeachment events are part of a nationwide effort. Recently, the RNC debuted a new website, StopTheMadness.gopwhich operates as a one-stop clearing house to defend the president– including opportunities for people to sign up as a volunteer, details on how to show up to a counter protest, and more. A $2 million TV and digital buy is also part of the nationwide push against 60+ vulnerable Democrats who campaigned on reaching across the aisle to work with President Trump – including targeting Rep. Max Rose’s district.

October 3, 2019… “Andrew Cuomo has been exposed in yet another stunningly corrupt pay-to-play scandal that traded $140 million in state funds in exchange for more than $1 million in campaign contributions. Cuomo has consistently evaded prosecution for his crimes, only emboldening him to continue them. Enough is enough–we are calling on the U.S. Attorney to formally investigate this matter on behalf of the aggrieved taxpayers of New York State. Quid Pro Cuomo must be stopped, and the only way to restore integrity to the governor’s office is if he is held accountable by the law.”

to Apologize for her Disrespectful Comments Toward Rural America


September 30, 2019… Chairman Langworthy issued the following response to Senator Biaggi’s tweets on rural Americans who voted for President Trump.
“The elitist and dismissive comments made by Senator Biaggi toward rural Americans–millions of whom are residents of the state she is supposed to represent–are sadly representative of today’s entire Democratic Party. The sentiment that anyone who does not subscribe to an urban, leftist agenda doesn’t deserve a voice is eerily reminiscent of Cuomo’s ‘conservatives have no place in New York’ comment. I invite Senator Biaggi to leave the Bronx and come Upstate so she can see how many good, hardworking New Yorkers are struggling under her narrow world view. She owes them an apology.”

September 24, 2019… “By joining the impeachment mob, Antonio Delgado and Sean Patrick Maloney just abandoned their constituents in favor of AOC and the Squad. The radical left’s endless obsession with trying to take out President Trump and derail his agenda will be rejected by the voters who want their representatives to focus on making their lives better, not their own power. This reckless decision will rightfully go down as the one that cost them their seats.”

September 20, 2019… “It’s about time Bumbling Bill put this dumpster fire of a campaign out of its misery. To blame his failure on the difficulties of running the city and campaigning is both a lie and an insult to his nine million constituents who are acutely aware that he has been checked out of his day job for quite some time. His mayoralty, just like his presidential run, has been a giant disaster.”

September 17, 2019… “Andrew Cuomo buckling on his license plate tax is a win for the taxpayers and a win for the New York Republican Party, who relentlessly fought this cash grab since the moment it was announced. It shouldn’t take a poll to tell the Governor what is blatantly apparent: New Yorkers are fed up with Albany Democrats incessantly hitting them with new taxes and fees to support their insatiable appetite for spending. Thankfully, we were able to stop this road wreck, but the only way to truly stop the tax and spend madness is to break up the Democrats’ monopoly on power and elect a Republican governor.”

Chairman Langworthy Submits FOIL on Cuomo’s License Plate Contest

NYGOP Chairman Langworthy Requests All Correspondence and Results of Cuomo’s License Plate Tax Contest

“Cuomo’s License Plate Tax Was Bad Enough; New Yorkers Have a Right to Know if Contest Was a Scam Too”


Albany, NY–September 6th…New York Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy today submitted a Freedom of Information Law request to the Governor Cuomo’s office for all documentation related to Cuomo’s license plate tax contest. Chairman Langworthy personally delivered the official request and also submitted it electronically.
You can watch video of the press conference here or view the FOIL here.
Cuomo, who has come under fire for his recent announcement that motor vehicle owners would be forced to purchase new license plates, invited New Yorkers to participate in a “statewide survey” to vote on a preferred design for the new plates. Four of the designs were remarkably similar featuring the Statue of Liberty, while the fifth design was of the Cuomo Bridge, named after his late-father, leading many to speculate that it was a faux contest orchestrated in favor of his namesake bridge design.
Voting closed on Monday, but Cuomo has not yet made public the results of the vote.
“Forcing New Yorkers to pay a new license plate tax and then devising a rigged contest to get his namesake bridge design is classic Prince Andrew,” said NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy. “Cuomo’s new tax was bad enough but now he needs to come clean and hand over all documents and correspondence related to this so-called contest. New Yorkers have a right to full transparency.”
