NRCC Fundraiser Raises Cash and Spirits for 2010

Getting ready to compete in the 2010 midterm elections is gathering the money to be competitive.

Last night, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal helped his former colleagues do just that.

NRCC aides said the event drew about 1,200 people and raised more than $6 million. The NRCC is tasked with engineering GOP seat gains in next year’s elections, the midpoint of Obama’s first term, after significant setbacks in the 2006 and 2008 elections.
