"It's always struck me as a bit odd that we try to rely so much financially on the same members we're working to get re-elected, whether it's this cycle or the next," Cornyn told Politico.
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) is chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). He is changing up the way the committee raises money. He has declared fundraising as the most important action of the committee and will be trying new avenues.
Previously, the NRSC expected senators to meet fund raising quotas. Cornyn will implement a more personal approach. "Instead of requiring that every senator fork over hundreds of thousands from their personal campaign accounts to the national Senate campaign coffers, Cornyn now wants each senator to attend three fund raisers - yes, they have to show up - and then the NRSC will chase after the attendees for that cash." That from the Politico.
The NRSC will organize the events. Last election cycle the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $70 million more than NRSC.
Change is good.
