The NRSC sends Begich a b-day cake. Any good? Nope, his office said.

It’s Sen. Mark Begich’s 52 birthday on Monday, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee was sweet enough to send him a cake to his D.C. office, onto which was written, “Happy Birthday to the Senator that votes with Obama 97 percent of the time.” Any good? I asked his office. Nah. They said that much like the NRSC, it was “just plain vanilla with artificially sweetened facts.”



Republican Party imposing primary purity to punish purity

From the New York Times:

“[T]he National Republican Senatorial Committee this week informed a prominent Republican advertising firm that it would not receive any contracts with the campaign committee because of its work with a group that targets incumbent Senate Republicans. Even more striking, a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund…” NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring said, “Purity for profit is a disease that threatens the Republican Party.”
