Texas Draft and NRSC Stagnation
Texas: Former Tom Delay opponent Richard Morrison ushers in the Draft Rick Noriega effort. There's even a Draft Rick Noriega blog. (Despite visual similarities, there's no association between that blog and the Guru's blog.) Morrison's post offers an impressive rundown of Noriega's background and experience.
Almost a month ago, the Guru highlighted how much more active the DSCC has been than the NRSC has. Well, here's a conservative blogger who agrees:
Three months into the 2008 cycle, one indicator of attention to detail and overall competence strongly suggests that Chuck Schumer`s DSCC will once again throttle the NRSC just as it did in the last cycle. ...A ringing endorsement, indeed. The conservative wing of the blogosphere is already wary of the NRSC. NRSC Chair Ensign has inherited the most futile job in politics.
By contrast, the NRSC`s site looks as it might have the day after last year`s elections. ... Frankly, one might think that the page had been abandoned completely. ...
Stick to contributing to individual campaigns, because anything that goes to the NRSC is money down the drain.
