Skip to comments.NRSC Raised Money Using Christine O'Donnell's Name the Day Before Delaware Primary

The day before the Delaware U.S. Senate primary, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) raised money using the name of the eventual winner, Christine O'Donnell.
A search of Google News on Monday using the search term "Christine O'Donnell" returned a paid advertisement by the NRSC at the top of the search field soliciting donations. A click through on the ad's link went to the NRSC's donation page. This indicates that the NRSC purchased "Christine O'Donnell" from Google.
I did not make a screen grab as it seemed more a curiousity than anything terribly newsworthy at the time. However, with the NRSC letting it be known they will not be funding O'Donnell--and doing so before she even gave her victory speech last night--their hypocrisy in raising money off her name must be exposed.
Cornyn must resign from the NRSC.
The "moderates" in the GOP have all crawled way out on the She cannot win limb. Now is the time to saw it off behind them. Do that and we destroy the RINOS credibility so baldly they will not be able to resurrect it for 2012.
Delaware is a small state. Enough money in O'Donnells coffers can do a whole lot of good there. Much more good then the millions being spent elsewhere like CA.
This is starting to look more and more like the late 1970s when Reagan's wingnuts took back the party from the Rockefeller Republicans.
I really like this post!
Wow. Just wow. Can we petition Cornyn to resign? Who elects him? We need to get busy folks.
Just curious, has Steele’s organization made a statement yet on O’Donnell’s victory? Will they be supporting her or not?
And then in 2014 he must be primaried and lose his seat.
NRSC is the Enemy within. They oppose conservatism.
Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee and I personally as the committees chairman strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine ODonnell 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 partys reckless spending policies in Washington.
NRSC just released a statement of support: http://realclearpolitics.blogs.time.com/2010/09/15/nrsc-chair-cornyn-commits-to-backing-odonnell/
The Senate Republican Caucus. Somehow I don't see Senators Paul, Miller, Buck, Lee, Toomey, and Rubio voting to give this guy another two years heading up the NRSC.
Does "bitter clingers" come to mind?
See No. 10. That said, Cornyn needs to be primaried.
As I wrote earlier, I just canceled payment on a check I wrote to the NRSC today. No more of my money will go to any national repub organization. And, you are welcome Cornyn.
In lieu of family-inappropriate language I shall simply say that these hypocritical traitors are beneath contempt.
(There. How did I do?)
All I’ve heard all day is “experts” saying the GOP blew the chance for a majority.They won’t give a dime to her campaign.Screw ‘em.None of them have any idea whats coming.They had predicted a turnout of about 30,000 for the primary-over 56,000 showed up.Its not an accident.People are PI$$ed!
I have heard that Steele will be supporting her, but nothing official yet.
Still, the fact that we have to even wonder about it is ridiculous.
