Dear NRSC E-Member,
This year, you will be receiving updates from us on key Senate races across the country where we have a good chance to pick up Republican seats. Last week NRSC Communications Director Ginny Wolfe sent out an e-mail announcing the launch of our newest Web site,
We wanted to notify all of our supporters that the New Jersey Senate race is an important opportunity for us. Even if you dont live in New Jersey, I encourage you to learn more about this race.
The latest polling numbers show that only 28 percent of the voters in New Jersey think Torricelli should be re-elected. They understand the importance of conservative leadership in Washington.
Please take a moment to explore the site at www.torricelliduck.com and make sure your friends, family and fellow Republicans have seen this latest example of the need for a Bush majority in the United States Senate.
s/Bill Frist, M.D. P.S. Please let me know what you are hearing about other races across the country so that I can pass on the latest information to other e-activists and my colleagues here in Washington.
FROM THE FIELD
BROWNSTEIN: BIKINI BUDGET
"It's not as tangible an asset as money or good poll numbers. But for a political party, confidence--in its message, its ideas, even its mission--is usually a critical ingredient of success in an election year. Right now, the confidence gap may be the biggest difference between the parties. Just over seven months before the midterm elections, Republicans are swaggering.
BUSH GOES ON REGAIN THE MAJORITY TOUR
President George W. Bush scheduled campaign stops for three GOP Senate challengers this week, as the ABC Political Note reported: "We can't say it often enough: helping Dr./Senator Frist win back control of the Senate is Political Priority Number One for this White House." President Bush headlined events for South Carolinas Lindsey Graham, Georgias Saxby Chambliss and Texas GOP nominee John Cornyn in a whirlwind "Regain the Majority" swing. Next stop . . Iowa.
N SYNC . . . OR OUT OF LUCK?
"Three Plains States Democrats top the list of Senate candidates whove received the greatest proportion of large-dollar, out-of-state contributions. That fact could leave the trio vulnerable to charges of being overly indebted to the Hollywood-D.C.-New York money axis in a region of the country known for downhome values," The Hill newspaper reports this week. "Democratic Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Tom Harkin of Iowa and Tim Johnson of South Dakota each received roughly four-fifths of their large-dollar contributions from out-of-state donors, according to the latest financial data filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC)."
