RNC: 100% as Evil But Only 50% as Stupid -- GOP Shifted Money Into Massachusett[e]s Quietly To GOTV While Not Painting a Red Target on Brown's Back

I was just going to praise the RNC for not getting too involved in this race and thereby avoiding turning off persuadable Democrats and independents.

Turns out they did it a little better than that. They did push money into the race -- 500 K, no one's idea of chump change -- but kept it on the QT.

While some journalists and political strategists across the partisan and ideological spectrum (including those at the Club for Growth in a press release attacking the NRSC) criticized the GOPís campaign arm last week for not putting money into the race, the reality is quite different.

In fact, the NRSC had, a full week earlier, transferred $500,000 to the Massachusetts Republican Party to support Brownís candidacy. For obvious reasons, the committee opted to keep that move quiet.

And the NRSC also got the Republican National Committee to agree to send funds to the Massachusetts GOP.
