Mitt Romney Pitches for NRCC

Posted September 13, 2012 at 8:59pm

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tonight pitched National Republican Congressional Committee supporters to give to the campaign committee and help the GOP keep control of the House.

Blaming President Barack Obama and his “liberal allies” for pushing the country “backward,” Romney asked for supporters to donate “$10 or more” in an email titled “Cleaning House.”

As nearly all  GOP pitches for money do, Romney’s name-checked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.).

Here’s the full text:


Barack Obama’s economic policies have hurt the country and pushed us backward. But he hasn’t acted alone — he’s had plenty of help from his liberal allies.

To clean up the mess that the President, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid have made, we need to control the House of Representatives. The House is where Paul Ryan comes from, and it’s where Republicans will start putting the economy back on track.

But before we can undo the damage, we will need your help to win in November. Please donate $10 or more right now.

Remember: If Democrats control Congress, we won’t be able to cut spending, the EPA will continue to run wild, and the backroom Solyndra deals that Democrats love will continue.

We need to win a majority in both houses of Congress. And we need you to stand with us: Please give $10 or more today.
