Skip to comments.O'Donnell: NRSC didn't help me
Posted on 11/02/2010 3:33:19 PM PDT by FTJM
Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine ODonnell complained Monday night that the National Republican Senatorial Committee did not give her the resources she needed to win.
ODonnell credited Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele for being supportive of her candidacy, but told Fox Newss Greta Van Susteren that the NRSC hasnt provided enough help.
Michael Steele has come to Delaware and campaigned for us, ODonnell said. The RNC has been very supportive.
I would have liked it if the NRSC had done something, she added. My opponent is horrible on so many issues. He stands to personally make millions from cap and trade.
ODonnell is down by double digits in numerous public polls, and in races across the country the national campaign committees have reallocated resources to competitive races.
She has complained about the NRSC in the past even after it gave the maximum $42,000 to her campaign which Washington Republicans suggest is just an attempt to further endear herself to grass-roots supporters.
Additionally, O'Donnell has not had a fundraising problem, raising $3.8 million in the month after her surprising primary win over Rep. Mike Castle.

Silly post .
COD has help from a much Higher Source.
That was from earlier this morning... we’ll see if she can make it a closer race.
Politico trying to make trouble for Christine one last time. Too late, guys.
She’s right — and this goes pretty much without saying...
Cornyn need to be contacted tomorrow
Snort...the last laugh will be when she wins!
Old news. Like two weeks ago. Could we please move on?
and voted out in 2012!
If it’s from Politico, it’s crrraaaap!
Jihad puss is cool too:
First one....of many I'm sure tonight, heehee!
If she loses, its too late to complain and the point is moot.
If she wins, she owes them nothing. Which is right where we want her. Her own person.
Politico keeps deleting my comments.
I’d consider that a great success on my part...
Christine should, seriously, run for RNC Chair!
Wasn't that right after Teh One's victory?
And a history of trashing Palin supporters and quoting Politico to dump on Christine O'Donnell?
Is it getting closer to time for a new bug-zapper thread?
What is a bug zapper thread?
Just a friendly warning not to criticize the Tea Party and Palin too much around here.
Oh, from the picture you posted I now understand where the term “First Wookie” originated.
Nor do I support it blindly: but I often find the use of the word "blindly" to be a liberal "tell". Sometimes the inborn tendency towards autofellatory superciliousness is too hard for a liberal to suppress, and the attitude slips out.
FWIW, I believe she had a shot had it not been for Rove, Kraut, and the NRSC. Sure...the NRSC gave her a little money, but they didn’t run ads for her. She didn’t get much help at all until last week when Alexander and the Fire Pelosi bus came to town.
I give Michaeal Steele props for that.
Never thought I would say that. ;o)
The GOP better watch their backs. Christine could have easily won this election with their support (just like Angle in NV). The tea party is on the rise. Look at the states where the tea party candidate was actually on the ballot (FL,CO). What were the GOP totals in THOSE states? Open your eyes GOP or it will be like that in every state. If you DARE to nominate someone like Mitt in ‘12 YOU ARE DONE!
If Rove and the GOP had any class they would have gotten behind O’Donnell and mentor her through the mind fields.
I blame Rove and the GOP for being shortsighted and mean spirited they gave O’Donnell the kiss of death when they were backbitting her.
No more smokey back rooms and scratch back deals
It is so clear when Polosi was removed from her calling when the house flipped and Reid could have lost his calling if the GOP was not in bed with the backer scratchers.
I will never send a dime to the GOP.
In just two years Reid will lose his calling for stronger tea is being brewed...
MO bears a striking resemblance to the Salt Vampire from ST-TOS “The Man Trap”:
I’ll bump this. I see no reason why Christine would lie about what happened. Looks like it’s war between the Republican establishment and us little people. So be it!
Not only did they not help her, they did everything they could to hurt her. Karl Rove,after she took the RINO out, and it was determined that she was a serious threat to the status quo, immediately attacked he. So called “conservative” talk show hosts, such as Todd Schnitt attacked her. Members on this forum attacked her. Her only support was people who wished to get back to Constitutional government. Unfortunately for the State of Delaware, there were not enough of those. Her crime to those who attacked her? She defeated their RINO in the primary.
HMMM. According to O’Donnell on Fox News this morning, the NRSC has an active FEC complaint against her campaign that they never withdrew from the primary fight. Sounds like more of the GOP old guard helping the Democrats rather than see a conservative tea party candidate elected.
After all of the dust has settled, I would like to see how much money is left in O’Donnell’s senate war chest? It would be interesting to see if she spent it all or how much of it she is keeping. Does anyone what limitations there are for left over money from a political race that is given directly to her campaign?
This question I asked will definitely rub some people the wrong way. That is not my intent. I just want to know this works. I know Hillary kept a lot of her money, but it was never disclosed what she could do or not do with the money after she lost the primary to Obama....
You can almost make book on that the media wil disclose and report on every penny that Christine has left over.
Both of these contests were win-able. Lizzie Borden could have beaten Coons. And Lady Gaga could have trounced Reid.
I hope she has a lot left over and keeps it - she deserves every bit of it! She exposed Rove and a few others RINO’S.
And, IIRC, Hillary had debt on that end of her campaign.
And RINO McCain had millions left over from his half hearted, no fire in the belly attempt in ‘08 and used to against conservative JD!
