Republicans Grumbling About Senate Campaign Committee

by RonChusid

With the Democrats showing prospects for picking up several Senate seats in 2006, the Republicans are getting nervous. The Wall Street Journal reports:

REPUBLICANS GRUMBLE about party’s Senate campaign committee, which has been outraised by Democratic counterpart. One strategist faults the committee for “wasting its time” handing out “Politician Awards” to Democrats, arguing the gibe is ineffectual. Spokesman Brian Nick says the committee is well ahead of its fund raising compared to this point in the last election cycle. The awards, he adds, cost nothing and have been well received in local media.
