Moment of Truth for Ensign

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Senator John Ensign inherited a disaster from Elizabeth Dole.  Republicans got pummelled in fundraising, recruitment, and results in the last cycle.  This put Ensign in a position in which he was forced to appeal to the RNC for funds early in the cycle.  Though recently closing the monthly gap, Ensign […]

DSCC Winning Web War

Friday, March 16th, 2007

Three months into the 2008 cycle, one indicator of attention to detail and overall competence strongly suggests that Chuck Schumer`s DSCC will once again throttle the NRSC just as it did in the last cycle.  The DSCC`s website suggests that it is serious about expanding its majority.  For over a month now, it has been regularly […]

Thune in the Running for NRSC Chair

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

Apparently John Thune has his sights set on the Chairmanship of the NRSC.  Thune would be an excellent choice.  He is a proven fundraiser and an excellent campaigner.  The establishment loves him because he took out Tom Daschle.  Conservatives love him because he’s not afraid to speak his mind.  He likely fair far better than […]

Senator Elizabeth Dole, the inept head of the NRSC, is asking Republican Senators to pony up and raise money for the organization that is supposedly in existence to recruit and support Republican Senate candidates.  For the record, Elizabeth Dole has successfully played a role in recruiting exactly one top-tier Republican Senate Candidate, Maryland Lt. Gov. […]
