DMS supports dynamic candidates and incumbents in key, contested districts across the country that are crucial to ensuring a Republican Majority in Congress. The path to the Majority runs directly through Main Street America, and DMS wins in the toughest races in the country. Once elected, Main Street members are committed to getting things done for the American people, enacting commonsense, conservative legislation in Congress.
