NRSC Backtracks… Sends Winner O'Donnell $42,000 Check
My, what a difference 12 hours of reflection and millions of outraged supporters will have on a political organization.
Last night the National Republican Senatorial Campaign (NRSC) told FOX News that they would not donate to Christine O’Donnell’s campaign after her landslide win over RINO favorite Mike Castle. They must have received a few phone calls… Today the NRSC very publicly announced that they were sending O’Donnell a $42,000 check this morning.
From the NRSC website, via Free Republic:
“Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee – and I personally as the committee’s chairman – strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.
“I reached out to Christine this morning, and as I have conveyed to all of our nominees, I offered her my personal congratulations and let her know that she has our support. This support includes a check for $42,000 – the maximum allowable donation that we have provided to all of our nominees – which the NRSC will send to her campaign today.
“We remain committed to holding Democrat nominee New Castle County Executive Chris Coons accountable this November, as we inform voters about his record of driving his county to the brink of bankruptcy and supporting his party’s reckless spending policies in Washington.
“In the weeks ahead, we will decide where to best allocate additional financial resources among the large number of competitive races at stake this November. While it’s not in Republicans’ interest to advertise our spending strategy to our opponents, it’s worth noting that just yesterday, the NRSC’s first independent expenditure ad aired in support of Dr. Rand Paul’s campaign in Kentucky, where we firmly believe that he will win in November.
They need to start taking their own advice.
