    <p>California incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer spent some time today with CNN's Wolf Blitzer straightening out her arithmetic. Boxer is in a toss-up race with GOP challenger and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.</p> <p>"I voted for over $2 trillion of tax cuts, the largest one was in the stimulus bill," Boxer said. Blitzer, confused, thought she meant $2 trillion in the stimulus, when she meant over her career.</p>

    Democrats have spent months pumping millions into the Pennsylvania airwaves, but Republicans are dropping into the state this week to support Senate nominee Pat Toomey. The National Republican Senatorial Committee announced its first ad of the cycle Wednesday on behalf of Toomey, who has been leading Democrat Joe Sestak in every public poll for months.

    With $2 million boost from GOP, Carly Fiorina launches new TV ad WASHINGTON -- Trailing Sen. Barbara Boxer in fundraising and in polls, Carly Fiorina's Senate campaign has received a $2 million boost from the national Republican Party and is using the money for a statewide TV ad blaming Boxer for the country's economic woes. The financial help comes at a critical time for Fiorina, the Republican former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Recent polls show her trailing the Democratic senator by six to eight percentage points, after the two were locked in a dead heat for most of the summer. Boxer...

    This is the epitome of hypocracy. The NRSC is one of the primary reasons why Tea Parties exist outside of the Republican Party. The NRSC has funneled millions of dollars from conservative contributors into the campaigns of characters like Lincoln, Chaffee, Arlen Specter, Lindsay Graham and our lovely senators from Maine. Gotta give 'em credit for chutzpah though!

    (CNN) - The National Republican Senatorial Committee blasted out an email to reporters Wednesday afternoon with the headline that Sen. John McCain has offered $1 million to the organization. The promise comes as the party committee is looking to pick up at least 10 seats in order to take back a majority in the Senate. NRSC Chairman Sen. John Cornyn praised McCain, saying, "It's very encouraging to see Sen. McCain step up and do this. Republicans have historically not done this like Democrats have, and that has been a real competitive advantage that they have had." (snip) McCain's resources are...

    Election '10: An iconic pundit and strategist takes heat for his election night analysis of a Tea Party victory in Delaware. Can we now focus on those who are really leading America over the cliff? Karl Rove's political street cred is beyond dispute. He's the guru who, to the dismay of Democrats and liberals still clinging to their hanging chads, guided that cowboy from Texas, George W. Bush, to the White House — twice. When he speaks, people listen. On Fox News last Tuesday, Rove ran off a laundry list of everything that's wrong with Christine O'Donnell, the candidate backed...

Political pundits have staggered around all day trying to explain the unexplainable; how a woman who seemed destined to be a perpetual also-ran, is now the Republican candidate for one of Delaware’s U.S. Senate seats.

It’s the party establishment and the center-right commentariat that needs to hear the message, and in that vein, Rush took on Karl Rove on today’s show. Rush demanded to know why Rove and other establishment figures want to make Christine O’Donnell’s character the issue, when it’s the character of the current administration and Democratic leadership in Congress that should get the focus. Instead of issuing self-fulfilling prophecies of doom,...

    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.

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee refused to fund the Tea Party darling in Delaware Christine O’Donnell, who kicked out of office the establishment Republican Castle in the state primary yesterday. This was the ugliest decision the Republican elite could have made. When folks donate to the NRSC they expect them to fight for every senatorial candidate.

People expect the NRSC to support all senatorial candidates that folks moved forward in legitimate Republican primaries. It is not the Republican’s elite who decides...

    campaign officials from both sides of the aisle concede that Castle should capture the Republican Senate nomination in next week’s Delaware primary. Signaling that the threat from tea party favorite and self-described marketing and media consultant Christine O’Donnell is believed to be exaggerated, the National Republican Senatorial Committee does not plan to devote any resources to help Castle survive the Sept. 14 primary. National conservative groups have been reluctant to support O’Donnell. And Washington Democrats this week have stepped up their offensive against Castle, already looking ahead to the general election contest. “I think that her winning is probably not...

    Republican brass in Washington and Delaware are doing all they can to tarnish Christine O’Donnell, who is taking on Rep. Mike Castle in the GOP primary for the Senate seat in Delaware. The GOP establishment has been shipping out reams of opposition research and links to negative news stories. A longtime political consultant in the state, O’Donnell was the party’s own candidate against former Sen. Joe Biden two years ago. But that hasn’t stopped the state’s party apparatus from working to slam her this time around.

    When given the chance this election season, Republican voters are tossing out hidebound incumbents and ushering in new blood, sending a signal to the GOP establishment that the flip-flopping and rampant spending of the latter Bush years won’t be tolerated. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who’d boasted of her Appropriations Committee power over pork-barrel spending, learned that lesson last week — conceding defeat to upstart challenger Joe Miller, an Iraq War veteran and Tea Party favorite. In this election cycle, the GOP grassroots also ended the tenures of incumbent Sens. Bob Bennett of Utah and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania — despite...

    Here is a new RNSC ad rolling out what appears to be a series of ads coming against California Dem Sen. Barbara Boxer. It focuses on her infamous command to Brigadier General Michael Walsh to call her “Senator” instead of “Ma’am.” It also rolls out a new website against Boxer called “CallMeMaam.com – Help Boxer Move from Being a “Senator” to a “Ma’am”". That’s an awesome idea!

    In one of the most chiling and gripping video ads I’ve seen in a long time, this clip by the NRSC sure puts the problems with this administration in sharp focus. The video opens with Obama, in a critically harsh speech tearing Bush apart for Katrina, and vowing “Never again!” It progresses quickly with glimpses into how this inept and corrupt administration has handled each catastrophe and disaster it’s been handed. Obama and his cohorts in charge of these top administrative offices, ignore the problems as if it weren’t theirs, choosing instead to take vacations, play golf and pursue campaign...

    Here is a great new ad put out by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) which goes after Democrat Richard Blumenthal for his lying about having served “in Vietnam.” Last week, the New York Times broke the story that Blumenthal actually never served “in Vietnam.” This ad associates Blumenthal with a long line of politicians who have had ethics problems, like Elliot Spitzer, Charlie Rangel, Rod Blagojevich, and others. It also features MSNBC’s Chris Matthews criticizing Blumenthal, and saying he could never support him. Blumenthal is running for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

    NRSC Chairman John Cornyn said today that Florida’s GOP Senate primary has been “a learning experience” for him. If we’ll remember back to last year, Cornyn’s NRSC recruited (then Republican) Governor Charlie Crist to challenge the already announced conservative darling Marco Rubio for the open Senate seat left by the departure of Mel Martinez. Of course Rubio didn’t need a challenger, and should have been allowed to run uninterrupted from Washington. Cornyn sees that wisdom now. “In this political environment it’s not necessarily helpful for candidates running in the states to have the national party chairman” endorse them. No joke....

    Charlie Crist, soon to be independent Senate candidate from Florida, tried to reach White House chief of staff Emanuel through intermediates. WH refuses to take the call. Dems plan big talent/money blitz for Kendrick Meek. What's Crist up to? Might he be interested in cutting a deal to caucus with the Democrats if they chase Meek from the field?

    Gov. Crist to make announcement on political future ThursdayGov. Charlie Crist's fall from Republican Party grace will finally hit rock bottom on Thursday when he is expected to announce that he will run for the U.S. Senate as an independent, according to several news sources citing anonymous sources. Crist had ducked the question for the past few weeks, but previously was on the record as saying he would never leave his beloved GOP. And by never, he meant as long as he thought he could beat Miami Republican candidate Marco Rubio, which seems like a long shot now. Cruist has...
  • NRSC still quietly helping Crist (Clowns)

    As much as John Cornyn might be blowing kisses to Marco Rubio publicly, the NRSC still is quietly helping Charlie Crist raise money. The latest NRSC memo about upcoming fundraisers lists zero Rubio events and eight for Crist:
