The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and the Republican National Committee (RNC) are building up their war chests as we get closer and closer to the November election. President Trump’s two PACs, Trump Victory and Trump Make America Great Again, both gave the RNC $2 million. The NRCC also recently received $2.7 million from a number of Republican PACs.
Scalise for Congress gave the NRCC $1 million, Team Ryan gave them $377 thousand (he is about done and does not need it anymore) and the Hawley Victory Committee gave $191 thousand. The McCarthy Victory Fund and Ann Wagner for Congress PAC both contributed $100 thousand to the NRCC cause. Interestingly, the Protect the House PAC gave the NRCC $733 thousand. Isn’t it their job to “Protect the House”? It is kind of in the PAC’s name.
I imagine that the NRCC will take that money and distributed it to Republicans in close races that need help. This I think is totally wrong. Just because you are a Republican or Democrat does not mean that you support all Republican/Democratic candidates. I cannot stand Nancy Pelosi and do not get me started on Paul Ryan and would hate to think that my donations to a different candidate were being used to help them win.
