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 that the establishment — in this case the NRSC – won’t be funding O’Donnell’s campaign.

Lameass republican RINOs.

Don’t worry we’ll get around to taking care of you too just like we are targeting dems in this election cycle just give us time.

We are taking names and we won’t be forgetting or forgiving.

You can run RINOs but you can’t hide.

I will let the NRSC know I am tired or their status-quo, good-old-boy club choices. I choose the directly fund the candidates of my choosing.

Instead of contributing to the Republican Party, we will send our donation to Christine O’Donnell’s campaign. There is NO excuse for a national party to be this clueless.

DITTO and a Big Amen.

You know what makes me so mad? The Democrat Party left me at LBJ and every since I have fought for Republican candidates, hoping and hoping and hoping that things would be different this time.

Many friends said there is no difference between the party's. I kept saying Oh yes there is, well I have been DUPED. I guess I really knew it all along, but kept hoping against hope and was double crossed every time.

I don't take kindly to being DOUBLE CROSSED, and your right, I WILL NEVER FORGET, never.

What do you expect the NRSC to do? Fund a race in DE where the candidate is down by double-digits or pour money into a competitive race in WA, CA, NV, WI or IL?

It’s a no-brainer. If O’Donnell closes the gap a bit, the money will pour back into DE.

Not a damn thing. The desperate, leftist, moonbat, Maddow crowd will be pimping some old 'masturbation' tapes. Listen to it and try to disagree with O'Donnell's points.

Yep, I have been saving my money for this signal out of the NRSC so I would know where my money is really needed.

Nothing like a non-endorsement from NRSC to make me donate money. Works like a charm.

They got ticked when Bennett hit the road
(they grumbled and made excuses)

They bitched when some incumbent congressmen got whacked
(the “cost of doing business” they said)

They got pissed when Crist started to get whipped by Rubio
(dang it)

They panic when Murkowski got pushed over the cliff
(those stupid tea party/Sarah wackos)

Now that the Castle has been sacked, THEY DECLARED WAR ON THE CONSERVATIVE BASE.

You know what, NRSC? I’ve got considerable bucks to back my candidates, and the bucks will most certainly not be flowing thru the frigging NRSC, or the NRC, or anything resembling the discredited, unprincipled, gaggle of jolly good fellows supposedly representing the Republican party (boo hoo). Fie! Done with ya!

This is the email I sent

Dear Sir,
It has come to my attention that the NRSC has decided not to contribute to the O’Donnell campaign. As a longtime Republican, I find this to be a dispictable act.
It shows your elitism and failure to understand that the grassroots of this nation are determined to take back this government from the political elitists who think the seats are their’s by right.
As I live in Texas, neither my wife nor myself will ever be voting for Senator Cornyn again. Nor, we will be sending any money to any Republican national organization.
If you want to declare war on the People, who fairly won an election against a career politican, so be it. We are prepared for it.

You have to wonder about their loyalty and who is calling the shots to make such a ridiculous decision. It also undermines the positive momentum of this win. Kind of like Rove being so negative this evening. What is wrong with these people? Do they want to keep the Obama agenda and let our country continue to crumble?

The tea party will help. Conservatives will donate. She doesn't necessarily need RNSC money. However, if the race closes, they will inject more cash and buy ads. You can count on that.

Next time we receive mail from the ‘NRSC’ asking for contributions send back a message as, “No $$ for RINO’s but have some tea instead”. Include a tea bag in the envelope or just the outer paper label.

No brainer or not, the way NRSC is doing it, they won’t see that much money to pour into any race they want to help to have a competitive edge.

Because they are not on our side.
They are not against 0bama. They are only for themselves.
They are even only for the Republican Party when it is their own private, exclusive party.

A Tea Party takeover of the GOP means they are out of favor along with the rest of the Establishment old guard, and thus out of work, and out of power.
They in all honestly would rather see Tea Party Republicans lose to 0bama's Democrats, because they don't get new bosses, and so they keep their jobs and their little fiefdoms of power.

Good point. NRSC could have said they would review her campaign to determine how they could best help. They did not do this. She had best not count on NRSC money under any circumstances. The plus will be thanking the voters not the NRSC suck ups for her win.

I take exception to you calling me a RINO. There’s a difference between being a RINO and a realist and you darn well know that.

I live in the real world, not some Democratic-inspired fantasyland. The RNSC has finite aka not limitless resources. There are probably 10 or so marginal races that are in play for the Republicans.

Would you rather have money thrown into a campaign where it could make the difference (e.g. a close race like WA or CA or IL or NV) or would you rather throw your money on what appears to be a longshot (O’Donnell is down by 10 points).

What’s the more responsible move for the good of the party there?

If the race in DE tightens (and it may), the RNSC will start pouring money in there. Period. Until then, resources are better directed elsewhere.

This is exactly why they will be sabotaging the GOP nominees.
They would rather Democrats win than Tea Party insurgents.
Democrats don't threaten their jobs. Having new bosses does.
