In the past week the NRSC has made a series of offensive attacks against the religious faith of Democrats. Late last week before the Thanksgiving holiday, the NRSC pushed false information to charge that President Obama was anti-religion. Then today, the NRSC attacked the religious faith of Senator Mark Pryor. Guy Cecil, executive director of the DSCC, issued the following statement calling on the NRSC to apologize for these religious attacks:

Today, national Republicans are repeating the Romney playbook and trotting out a stale and disproven line of attack that takes issue with Democrats for supporting the exact same Medicare savings that Republicans widely support. The truth is only Republican senate candidates want to end Medicare as we know it, create a voucher program, cut benefits, and force seniors to pay more for health care each year.

In 2012 the GOP’s failure to connect with minorities, women, and young people cost them the election and prompted national Republicans to promise that they would moderate or “rebrand” their party. This effort culminated in an “autopsy” project that laid out the so called rebrand.

SOBERING GUT CHECK: 73% DISAPPROVE OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS. According to a new Quinnipiac poll this week, Republicans in Congress fare far worse than Democrats with voters. Just 20% approve of the job Republicans in Congress are doing, while 73% disapprove.
<a href="/pressrelease/mitch-mcconnell-self-proclaimed-guardian-gridlock-obstructs-pay-hike-troops">Mitch McConnell, Self-Proclaimed Guardian Of Gridlock, Obstructs Pay Hike For Troops</a>
Yesterday, Mitch McConnell, the self-proclaimed “guardian of gridlock,” voted to block pay increases for all members of the uniformed services. If McConnell put his thirst for gridlock aside, more than 43,000 active military personnel and nearly 9,000 civilian personnel in Kentucky would receive a one-percent pay increase.

Ted Cruz, the leader of the Republican Party, is set to roll out his own health care plan, and Republican Senate candidates across the country are likely to embrace it. Cruz’s plan is likely to be nothing more than a repackaging of reckless and irresponsible proposals that would take us back to a time when insurance companies could discriminate and deny coverage while rolling back crucia

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Deputy Press Secretary Regan Page issued the following statement responding to Mitch McConnell’s shamefully desperate attempt at blaming Alison Lundergan Grimes for the NRSC’s repeated use of sexist rhetoric:
<a href="/pressrelease/team-mcconnell-nrsc-launch-another-controversial-sexualized-attack">Team McConnell & The NRSC Launch Another Controversial “Sexualized Attack”</a>
Mitch McConnell has a long record of refusing to fight for Kentucky women in Washington and standing behind offensive and sexist comments. The latest assault from Mitch McConnell’s campaign team is a sexist and offensive remark that yet again reveals McConnell’s true feelings towards women.
<a href="/pressrelease/gop-senate-candidates-embrace-tea-party-reject-mitch-mcconnell">GOP Senate Candidates Embrace Tea Party, Reject Mitch McConnell</a>
Mitch McConnell’s deep unpopularity even among his own party is on full display this week as a second Republican establishment backed Senate recruit is refusing to say if she would back McConnell for Republican leader. The combination of McConnell’s abysmal approval numbers and the reality that he is the walking, talking embodiment of everything that’s wrong with Washington is leading GOP Senate candidates backed by the NRSC to run towards the Tea Party and away from Mitch McConnell.

After months of shamelessly running on “Cruz Control”, John Cornyn will announce his reelection bid in Texas today.
Since the day Ted Cruz was sworn into the Senate, John Cornyn has bowed to the junior Senator. On the budget, the debt ceiling, the Violence Against Women Act, immigration reform, it's clear who calls the shots.
