  • NRCC Endorses Nancy Pelosi for Minority Leader

    WASHINGTON – With Nancy Pelosi facing a challenge within her own party after House Democrats’ disastrous election results, the NRCC would like to offer its full support to the embattled former Speaker of the House. Under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, House Democrats squandered their majority by forcing through unpopular legislation like Obamacare, of which Pelosi famously told us, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” After her party’s devastating 63 seat loss in the ensuing 2010 election, Pelosi miraculously maintained her spot as Democratic leader, which, predictably, led to the largest Republican...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is heading up a National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) fundraiser in New York on April 25th. However, the venue of the fundraiser is raising some eyebrows: For those who might not know, the “Ricketts Family” are the primary donors to a Super-PAC specifically created to block Donald Trump from winning the GOP nomination. Billionaire family Joe and Marlene Ricketts, owners of the Chicago Cubs, have recently given $5,000,000.oo to Katie Packer who heads “Our Principles PAC“, an organization created exclusively to defeat Donald Trump. Katie Packer recently outlined what they are doing with the...

    I'm liking this... Donald Trump dramatically escalated his feud with rival Ted Cruz on Monday, threatening to sue the Texas senator over his eligibility for office if he does not retract alleged **lies** about Trumps positions – and calling on the Republican National Committee to intervene on two fronts. The billionaire businessman wants the RNC to pressure Cruz, and also stop allowing so many donors at the debates. If the RNC does not **get its act together,** Trump warned, they would be violating the **pledge** he signed to support the eventual GOP nominee. I think he should sue. Cruz either...

    GOP Friend, Before Trump takes the stage at tonight’s debate, I’ll be giving him a list of his most active supporters within our Party. Since you’ve identified as a Trump supporter, I wanted to make sure you had the opportunity to make it on his list. Contribute $100, $75, $50, or even just $35 to identify yourself as one of Trump’s earliest supporters within our Party. Trump could proudly see your name on his list of supporters before he gets up on that stage and fights for his platform in front of millions of Americans. To send these lists over...

    breitbart ^ | 1/1/16 | Stephen K. Bannon & Matthew Boyle
    Republican House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% has released his New Year’s resolutions for 2016, which include advancing a conservative agenda and building on the success that he claims he has had since he was elected Speaker in October. Ryan claims that in 2016 he will promote: 1. Conservative Agenda 2. Unity 3. Decentralized Power 4. Transparency and Regular Order 5. Culture Change 6. Next-Generation Platform 7. Building on Progress But, in his first two months as Speaker—and his history before that—Ryan has veered away from every single one of these. That suggests it’s highly unlikely Ryan will ever,...

    Before he entered the race for the White House, Ben Carson signed on to a campaign to raise money to fight Obamacare. When Juanita McMillon saw his name, she was eager to get out her checkbook... She gave $350. Her money went to the American Legacy PAC, an organization with ties to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. With Carson as the face of its Save Our Healthcare campaign, American Legacy raised close to $6 million in 2014 — and spent nearly all of it paying the consultants and firms that raised the money. Just 2% was donated to Republican candidates...
  • Are the NRCC, NRSC & RNC scared of Donald Trump?

    I'm disappointed Reince Priebus hasn't attacked Trump yet. I think these guys are scared that Trump can use his megaphone to destroy any small donor support for these groups. The probably don't need small donors but I think it would be bad for their morale if they were not getting any small donors. This another thing Trump should look at blowing up figuritively in the short term.

    GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that his immigration plan would include giving illegal immigrants six months to register as guest workers. “Those who are here, you know, we have to recognize that we can't just round them up, but we can give them an opportunity to register. I would give them a six-month period, and if they register and they have a pristine record, they haven't been causing problems, I would give them an opportunity to become guest workers, not citizens, not voting people, not people who get goodies,” said Carson. “And I...

    The political arm for House Republicans says it is making a play for Iowa's 1st and 2nd congressional district seats. The National Republican Congressional Committee said Monday that it's buying $1.3 million in television ad time in the two districts, with spots to begin airing Friday. The purchase, the first for the NRCC in both districts this campaign cycle, is a sign they think they can win both races, officials say. Tyler Houlton, an NRCC spokesman, said more than $900,000 is being spent in the 2nd District, with purchases in the Cedar Rapids and Davenport markets. Another $400,000 is going...

    Friend, Here’s the deal: in just 2 days the NRCC will close the books on the Second Quarter. Within minutes of reporting our numbers to the FEC, President Obama’s campaign machine is going to be examining our report top-to-bottom looking for any sign of weakness. We need to have a great showing. The team at the NRCC has been working around the clock to reach our goals, but we are still a little short. It looks like from our records that you haven’t pitched in yet to help us. Here’s your record from our file: (SNIP) Friend, I’m asking for...

    NRCC Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) said the national party was ready to help David Brat but have had trouble reaching him. Multiple times Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Walden texted and called Brat to say congratulations and offer assistance, but Brat’s voicemail was full and by 6 p.m. Wednesday, they had not yet spoken. Walden said the GOP only had Brat’s cell as a point of contact but expected to connect with him soon over phone and in Washington.

    (CNN) – A warning this election season: If you are searching the Web for information on Democratic congressional candidates, read the fine print. At least 15 websites that appear to be official campaign sites for Democratic candidates, are actually the handiwork of the National Republican Congressional Committee. In an effort to improve their online efforts this election season, the NRCC’s digital team came up with what the group believes is a great idea: get out the Republican message through fake Democrat sites. “The idea is people who are looking for information on the candidate, one of the places we all...
  • NRCC Blacklists Conservative Firm Jamestown for Fighting Republican Incumbents

    National Journal ^ | 1/15/2014 | Alex Roarty
    The National Republican Congressional Committee has quietly blacklisted the conservative political firm Jamestown Associates, according to three sources with direct knowledge of the decision, an apparent payback for the group's previous work targeting Senate GOP incumbents. The NRCC is the second major political committee to effectively excommunicate Jamestown from its operation, joining the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which announced in November that it would no longer work with the firm. Unlike the NRSC, however, the NRCC—which made the move at the same time as its Senate counterpart—kept its decision a secret.   "Jamestown has made it very difficult to support...

    It’s hard to believe the National Republican Congressional Committee was able to narrow the list down to only 35. From the “train wreck” that is Obamacare, to the brilliant idea of solving the debt limit issue with a trillion-dollar platinum coin, 2013 has been, shall we say, less than stellar for Democrats. “Before we ring in 2014, it’s important to look back at some of their biggest failures in the past year,” the post’s author Matt Gorman told Red Alert Politics. “2013 may be rapidly coming to an end, but the Democrats’ troubles are just beginning.” While the complete list...

    Although the Republican Party Platform opposes abortion and homosexual marriage, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), which provides funds to GOP candidates, is providing money to two Republican candidates who are homosexual, and who support gay marriage and abortion. One of the candidates, Carl DeMaio, has also received $15,000 from the political arm of House GOP leaders Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), meanwhile, has spoken out and said that individual House members can contribute directly to candidates, but dues that he and other members pay to the NRCC should not necessarily go...

    SAN DIEGO — It’s January 2015, and a newly elected House member from California walks side by side with his male partner to be sworn into office in Washington. The young lawmaker is a supporter of same-sex marriage. He believes the government should keep abortion legal. He considers himself an environmentalist. He's also a Republican. . . Despite his potential of being a maverick if he makes it to Congress, DeMaio is not a fringe candidate. He has early support from the party establishment — the National Republican Congressional Committee, the official party group responsible for electing Republicans to the...

    Following revelations that his ex-wife accused him of trespassing on her property earlier this year, former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford (R) has lost the support of his national party. The news comes as controversy continues to swirl around Sanford and his personal life — a process that began with his well-publicized 2009 affair but was inflamed, the Washington Post has learned, when one of the Sanfords’ sons met Mark Sanford’s former mistress for the first time the night he won the GOP nomination. The National Republican Congressional Committee on Wednesday took the unusual step of telegraphing that it will...
