    <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 ^ | 2010-09-29
    (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...

    Senate Candidates Rubio, Buck Say GOP Needs to be Held Accountable for Spending and Balanced Budget Promises. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican Senate nominee aligned with the Tea Party movement, went on the offensive against the GOP on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday, saying that both the Republican and the Democratic parties are to blame for the country's problems. Rubio said that politics today is "full of people that think they can say or do anything, because once they get elected they think they'll raise so much money they can make you forget." Rubio took on Florida's popular incumbent Governor...

    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...

    There she was: Beaming, waving, jumping through interviews, and calling to her followers, “Come on, kids, let’s go join the Senate!” Well, not quite, but the jubilation from Christine O’Donnell and her followers Wednesday was somewhat like what one sees when a guy from the stands takes the half-time, half court shot and wins a million bucks. 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. I think she did it through a simple...

    “Let’s go balls to the wall for Christine O’Donnell,” Rush Limbaugh implored listeners on his show today, but Rush knows that his listeners are the choir to which he is preaching. 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,...

    Just released statement from John Cornyn, head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee: "Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee - and I personally as the committee's chairman - strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O'Donnell in Delaware.

    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...

    Senator John Cornyn is the current Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). Please help the Senator learn to be more careful and respectful. The NRSC announcing they would not support O'Donnell was a PR disaster. Conservatives cannot afford to have leaders who are completely out of touch with reality.

    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. They should not discriminate between the glamorous former CEO lady and the woman who struggled through home foreclosure. 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...

    Report: National Republican Senatorial Committee Won’t Fund Christine O’Donnell (Updated)by Colby Hall | 10:35 pm, September 14th, 2010 Earlier tonight Christine O’Donnell was declared the winner of the Republican Senate primary in Delaware over heavy favorite Mike Castle. Since O’Donnell was viewed as the Tea Party candidate endorsed by Sarah Palin, with little chance of winning in the general election in November, this race had shaped up as a the GOP establishment versus the Tea Party Republicans. In fact, just last night Charles Krauthammer called a vote for O’Donnell as irresponsible. Well according to a recent report, it turns out...

    12:19 p.m. ET – I just ran into NRSC head John Cornyn coming off the elevator. Most Washington Republicans will tell you on background they think the Delaware Senate pick up is gone for them if Christine O'Donnell wins the GOP primary, but they are reluctant to say so on the record. Cornyn came pretty close. He said that not only does he have doubts about whether O'Donnell can win in Delaware, but he also admitted that race is the "lynchpin" to any chance of Senate Republicans taking back the majority. SNIP I then asked If O'Donnell wins, are you...

    NATIONAL SUPPORT: Still no word if Murkowski, who is flush with cash, will enter as a write-in.National Republican establishment money is lining up behind Joe Miller, with a $212,000 pledge from the same national campaign committee Miller accused of trying to steal the election for incumbent U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski. The support comes as Murkowski is considering an independent write-in candidacy after losing to Miller in last month's Republican. The Miller campaign cash is from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group that Miller assailed before the count of absentee votes decided the primary. Miller complained when the NRSC...
