With ABC News reporting yesterday that National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn pledged that the NRSC won't spend money in contested Republican Primaries to, "ease some of the anger being directed at the party establishment," today many are wondering how serious Cornyn was in making this pledge.
"After announcing yesterday that the NRSC won't be spending money to fuel the Republican 'Civil War,' people around Florida are wondering if Chairman John Cornyn will put his money where his mouth is. They are asking, 'Will Chairman Cornyn demand that Charlie Crist return his $10,000 check,'" said Eric Jotkoff, Florida Democratic Party spokesman. "Over the last few weeks, the people of Florida have abandoned Crist with his approval rating now down to 42% and the Governor was labeled 'America's Worst Governor' by Forbes Magazine. Now in another serious blow to his campaign, Crist's Washington Republican base has cut off his financial support after 'Big John' Cornyn woke up to the fact that he can't just get back on his high horse and demand the tea party types follow his decrees to get behind Crist."
