#NCSEN: Natl’ Republican Senatorial Committee, Theam Tillis join forces to fundraise
Well, Bloomberg News has confirmed that The National Republican Senatorial Committee — the Republican National Committees’ fundraising arm for US Senate races — has officially signed on to Theam Tillis.
Interesting. A blogger “outreach” guy from the NRSC connected with us several months ago. This guy TOLD us that the NRSC would not be getting involved with any specific candidate in North Carolina until AFTER the primary was done. A politico from DC telling a lie. *Shocking!*
The address for “The Tillis Victory Committee” is the same as the one for Huckaby, Davis, Lister & Associates, a “political accounting firm” based in Alexandria, Virginia. FEC filings do not show any money raised by the group prior to September 30. It will be interesting to see the year-end report. Our research has found that Mitch McConnell also uses these guys.
This group operates separately from “The Thom Tillis Committee” which, according to FEC filings, is based in Cornelius, North Carolina.

The NRSC have always been establishment hacks. They really got into primaries against conservatives in 2010. One example was Florida where they endorsed Obama Republican Charlie Crist, contributed to him, and helped him raise other money. Then when Marco Rubio, with help from the Senate Conservatives Fund and the Club for Growth, pulled ahead in the polls, Crist, in a snit switched to independent and made it a three way Senate race. The embarassed NRSC had to try to get their money back, which Crist resisted. They largely stayed out of primaries in 2012, but now are back in and in a big way. One NRSC operative was quoted in Red State as saying that they would spend all their money, if necessary, defending establishment incumbents in primaries, even if that left no money for the general election campaigns. They are also out doing opposition research against conservative primary candidates in 2014.
NRSC (and I should add NRCC and RNC) are establishment snakes in the grass. Conservatives should NEVER give them money, and instead contribute directly to sound conservative candidates or give to sound conservative political groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund and the Club for Growth.
