Despite political rumors previously circulating that the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) was going to abandon Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-McLean) because early polling suggested a Democratic lead, their latest action proves such conjecture wholly false. The NRCC just committed over $710,000 in new independent expenditures on Rep. Comstock’s behalf, making her the top recipient of their most recently announced round of spending in 15 districts around the country.
Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Levittown), and the open Democratic seat in southern Minnesota (MN-1; Rep. Tim Walz (D-Mankato) running for Governor) are the next two attracting substantial support. The NRCC is immediately investing $523,000 into an independent expenditure in PA-1, and $509,000 of similar spending for MN-1.
