WARNING TO TEA PARTY: If this doesn’t open your eyes about the battle ahead WITHIN the GOP, nothing will:
(Earlier this month, she released a statement on her campaign website slamming the National Republican Congressional Committee for supposedly denying her request for a donation for a recount legal team.)
Mind you, this is AFTER she won. The GOP cannot say that they didn’t support her financially because they didn’t think she could win. She already had won! All she asked for was for some financial help to make sure her election was not stolen from her by the Democrat through the recount process!
This shows that the top NRCC leadership would prefer that a Democrat wins, over a Republican tea party member! I wish FOX News, Hannity, O’Reilly, anybody would question the NRCC about this, and shine the light of day on this outrage.
To follow up on my post, this is consistent with the way some Conservatives slammed the GOP senatorial primary winners in Delaware and in Nevada. This happened AFTER the ladies had won their primaries! There was no gain to the GOP for doing so, as their chosen folks had lost, and the only obvious consequence from their carping was going to be the election of the Democrat...which happened. Based on what happened here, I can put 2 and 2 together, and see that the GOP knowingly conspired to throw the election to Harry Reed and to Coons. This is sickening.
She shouldn't be too ungrateful to the Republican apparatus. If they hadn't sent the guerrilla video team to catch this clown being himself, she would have never stood a chance. Just the fact that they unleashed such an effective tactic is also encouraging that they may be getting a clue.

The NRCC backtracked and did end up sending her financial support for the recount. She was able to raise enough money to get a legal team together. But it took some national radio talk show hosts to shame them into doing it.
She did not ingratiate herself with the national GOP when she criticized them for staging the YouTube video hit piece of Etheridge accosting the young men with the camera and microphone. While she had a point, it was one to make after the election, imho. Or, if she was bent on shaming them during the election, she was a bit naive to expect them to fall all over themselves to support her when she requested. Don't get me wrong, they should have supported her without question. But she made it a tough pill for them to swallow.
