Senator John Cornyn, Texas Republican and Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released the following statement regarding the Delaware Senate race:
“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.
“We remain committed to holding Democrat nominee New Castle County Executive Chris Coons accountable this November, as we inform voters about his record of driving his county to the brink of bankruptcy and supporting his party’s reckless spending policies in Washington.”
Following the election results from last night, Fox News reported that the NRSC would not be funding Christine O’Donnell’s campaign, because she was considered to be un-electable against Democratic candidate Chris Coons. It is currently unknown as to why this information differs greatly from today’s statement from Mr. Cornyn.
