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.
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.
Carl Cameron was careful to note this a.m. that it’s not the maximum of what the NRSC can do, however. I’m glad it was dealt with so quickly and interpret it as a goodwill gesture of unity and perhaps one of the first signs that the beltway realizes they can accomplish nothing without the people. An apology to voters would also rock as well.
