NRSC Will Not Support O'Donnell [Update: NRSC now says it will support O'Donnell]
Fox News | 14 September 2010

Posted on 09/14/2010 7:35:04 PM PDT by Lurker

Full statement by John Cornyn, head of the NRSC:

“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.

“It remains to be seen whether national Democrats will provide a similar level of support for many of their nominees, including in key battleground states like Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Arkansas, Illinois, and New Hampshire, among others. The Democrats' indecision reflects the fact that Republicans are on offense in at least 12 Democrat-held states and we are leading in the polls in seven of those 12 states.

“Finally, on the matter of the New Hampshire Senate race, while the results remain outstanding, we continue to monitor the Republican primary race, and we stand ready to fully support whichever candidate is chosen as the nominee.”

If the GOP is turning against us in the general elections, they will regret it.

This could spell the end of the GOP.

Then its time for the people to show the NRSC how worthless they are and that we can crush them next.

Forget a third party.

We need a SECOND one.

TEA Party should sacrifice McCain as a tit-for-tat IF it can be determined that GOP will still have a majority in the Senate. This can be done by an independent running in AZ if the deadlines are not up. If they are, the vote can go to someone else on the ballot.

I think tonights results should put to bed the lie that Castle was more “electable”. How could someone whose loses the primary by such a large margin be more “electable” than the winner?

If true, not unexpected. The establishment Republicans are being forced into a situation where they have to choose: remain the stealth enemies of conservatism, and the people, or come right out and declare themselves as such. They can no longer hide.

This may hurt in the short run (although I don’t think it will), but as part of the longer war it is necessary. Sides are being chosen, and the tsunami is on our side, not theirs.

I’d be more upset about this if I’d have some of my own money involved. I quit supporting the RNC and the NRSC some time ago. I only support individual candidates.

Not only no money, but no volunteer time either.

I no longer belong to the GOP if there is a choice between Tea Party and GOP in an election.

I don’t think anyone who’s paying attention should be surprised by this.

Although I think the acronym is extremely overused here, they are pretty much a merry band of RINOs.

I was tempted to use a vulgar term for a certain sphincter muscle, but I don’t want the mods to scold me. LOL.

THE NRSC did everything to derail her campaign and they failed. How much were they going to give her for the general? Probably nothing. I don’t give them any money anyway. Not anymore. No longer the king makers, they just have sour grapes.

Castle and Coons will split the Liberal/Dem vote, allowing Christine to win.

Wow.

The power elite does not like losing power.

Both the Democrats and Republicans thought Washington was a club, with the haves and have nots.

I guess the struggle is joined.

Hear, Hear. So what is the plan for us?

Their decision has just verified what we have all feared for so long, Most of the GOP are RINOS.

Yes, they will pay for this. I was disgusted with Carl Rove attitude with O'Donnell's win tonight. He has turned on her and says she will not win in the General.

I never thought I would dislike Rove, but this is it for me, he too is a RINO. They all have their money ties together and are scared S---tless about loseing their positions. THIS IS WAR now.

Time to send money to O'Donnell.

NRSC should have kept their mouths shut.....They’ll not get the donations, they need to support their friends.

Donate till it hurts folks to the R in your districts and those that need your support nationwide.

This further proves that it is not worthwhile to contribute to the Republican party. One should contribute to worthy candidates, or to issue-specific organizations.

If the Republican party will not support conservative, non-RINO candidates, then the party does not deserve our support.

If true it’s a very dumb move. She won the primary and if she didn’t cheat (I’m sure she didn’t) she should be supported by the party.

What or who was his source?

The Rockefeller RINOs know their only shot at survival, their only shot of clinging to the tiny shred of power they have left is to sabotage real conservatives running in liberal RINO states in New England and the like.

If a candidate like O’Donnell does as well as the RINOs who always run and lose, or heaven forbid, does BETTER than their vaunted RINOs, then the RINOs’ last argument is exposed for the lie it is.

They get their candidates because they have convinced Republicans, just as they did with McCain in 2008, that only a RINO can win. But the last time a non-RINO was allowed to run was Ronald Reagan. Not coinicdentally, it was the last time a Republican won in New England.

Republicans are starting to doubt the RINOs’ propaganda.
That is why they must destroy O’Donnell, to make sure that the truth doesn’t finally get a chance to see the light of day.
