The NRSC, National Republican Senatorial Committee, does not like the newest ad put out by the Lincoln Project, regarding four senatorial races which Cook Political Report currently has labeled in the toss-up category. The Hill:
“Senators Collins, Gardner, McSally and Tillis have spent too much of their time in office enabling Donald Trump and not enough time fighting for the needs of their constituents,” Jennifer Horn, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said in a statement.
“Their defense of Trump’s unpresidential behavior and unfitness for office has disqualified them from the privilege of serving in the United States Senate,” she added.
A spokesperson for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) slammed the Lincoln Project in response to the video.
“It’s sad to see the media treating this pathetic Democrat scam PAC seriously,” NRSC spokesman Nathan Brand said in an email. “Just because a group of bitter, failed political consultants are lining their own pockets by ripping off donors, doesn’t mean they deserve any attention for their lies.”
This is an interesting characterization of the Lincoln Project, as “bitter failed political consultants.” The idea being, perhaps, that if they were happy and successful political consultants, they would be all in for Donald Trump? It would also be nice to know what “lies” Brand is speaking of. The text of the latest ad features newspaper clippings and is straight forward. However, as the year progresses, this is unquestionably the level of sniping that we’ll see more of. Here’s the offensive clip, if you haven’t seen it already. it goes without saying that these four senatorial campaigns were reached for comment and have not responded.
