Both Reince Priebus and Mark Levin were on WMAL Tuesday…but not at the same time. RNC Chair Reince Priebus was asked to respond to comments Mark Levin has made that they’ve done next to nothing to support Cuccinelli in the VA. Gov. race. Priebus basically said that the RNC has spent 3 million on their ground game in VA which doesn’t just help Cuccinelli, but also other candidates on the Republican ticket.

As well he should be - so is Rush - any pundit who isn’t reveals his/her true colors.
Apparently Fox has taken that page down.
Sorry...I meant to reply to the OP.
Here is the link from The Right Scoop:
The Republican Party wanted Cuccinelli to lose.
Good for Mark! Of course he’s on the warpath... Terry The Punk McAullife is now his governor... *barf*
The Republican Party, like the Democratic Party, is just a wing of the Communists.
They all need long prison sentences. Or worse.
First they called intensively for contributions on my landline.
Then they stuffed my mailbox with ‘issue’ surveys and contribution cards as well as slick brochures toting their ‘fiscally conservative’ candidates (Not mentioning that their social position were anything but conservative)
Now they are beginning to call and text me on my cell phone.
The buck stops here. The RNC and GOP SENATE COMMITTEE will never get another cent from me.
If everyone sent them a tea bag in their return envelope
I think they would get the message.
When asked, the voice on the other end promised me that Tea Party House members and candidates were getting financial help.
It wasn't two days before that Michele Bachmann told Mark Levin that she got zero assistance.
I called him out as a liar and haven't heard from them since.
Make that October.
His name sounds like a wuss.
Well perhaps a wuss but definitely a Rove-bot.
“Levin said its the church groups, Tea Party activists, and others who are doing the hard work of getting people out to vote on election day.”
That is so true! The RNC did not want Tom Coburn to win in OK, and they were upset when he won the primary. They did almost nothing to help him in the general election.
My daughter volunteered almost full time on Coburn’s campaign, and the people who showed up to do all the work were local conservatives, including many homeschooling families.
During the last week of the campaign, when it looked like Coburn was going to win easily, all of a sudden staffers who worked for Republican politicians in other states showed up and tried to take over. They were rude, pushy, and treated the homeschool teens who were doing the real work like slaves. When someone ordered pizza for the kids, the out of state losers tried to tell the teens they weren’t allowed to eat until they had made all their calls. My daughter, a redhead who doesn’t take crap, stepped in and told them to butt out and leave the kids alone.
At the Coburn victory party, the division in the Republican Party was evident. There were lots of old guys in rumpled suits, drinking booze, and speaking only to each other, and then there was the large, happy crowd of grass roots ordinary conservatives who were celebrating the victory and the election of a man they hoped would be a true conservative voice for Oklahoma.
Yes, Coburn has been a disappointment at times, but he is better than the candidate that the Republican establishment had chosen.
Send them some weed.
Then swat them.
So, is Coburn working well for the conservative grass roots voters who put him in office?
Or is he sucking up to ‘Republican Senators Central’ for orders on how to vote?
Ive posted this a number of times and do so again inasmuch as THIS is a constantly recurring problem and some may not grasp how widespread it is.
If you want to know why Ive cautioned my many friends to NOT SEND THE RNC A NICKLE, READ ON.
Over the years when, to steal a line from Billy Joel, I wore a younger mans clothes I was involved with several pretty solid conservative candidates for Congress. One was a Democrat (Lawrence Patton McDonald) because that was the only way he could win in that district. Those old-timers who know Larrys record will tell you that he was a solid an anti-communist America Firster and more Republican than the Pubbies in nearby districts at the time. (His mothers cousin was General George Patton from whom he got the middle name and his incredible resolve and love of this country.) How ironic that he, like General Patton, was also assassinated by the communists they both despised.
Those other candidates ran as Republicans. Because I was a rabid Bircher back then (still am philosophically!), those candidates had to pass my rigid litmus test or I went looking for someone who did. For that reason, I hooked up with what the TRADITIONAL country club Pubbie establishment types believed were too radical for their refined tastes.
As those campaigns began to unfold and it became clear to the country clubbers that these guys 1) had a shot and 2) were pretty independent thinkers who would be hard to keep on the reservation once they got sworn in, the local Pubbies communicated that information to the Republican National HQ types who rather quickly sent in campaign professionals ostensibly to lock up the impending victory.
Instead, in nearly every case to which I was privy, these professionals proceeded to TORPEDO our guys campaign in subtle but effective ways.
From that experience I can tell you that the Pubbies at the HQ in D.C. would rather have a Democrat win a given district than have a pubbie up there who would embarrass them by refusing to follow the party line.
If YOU become involved in campaigns for solidly conservative, America and Constitution loving, hard-nosed, independent thinking candidates in 2014 and beyond and I pray many of you do — please DO NOT trust any of those folks from GOP HQ in Washington. If they want to send you no-strings cash for your campaign, take it. If, however, they suggest sending in one of their professionals, tell them to fuggetaboutit.
They ARE WHO GOT US INTO THIS MESS AND THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS!!!!
