Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the NRSC, told ABC News:
“I reached out to Christine this morning, and as I have conveyed to all of our nominees, I offered her my personal congratulations and let her know that she has our support. This support includes a check for $42,000 – the maximum allowable donation that we have provided to all of our nominees – which the NRSC will send to her campaign today,” Cornyn said in the statement.
Here’s data on recipients of NRSC funds this year. As you can see, O’Donnell will get more than Marco Rubio and Scott Brown — since Brown’s was a short special election and they’d already spent money on Crist before he went AWOL.
