National Republican Senatorial Committee
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is a political committee established by Republican members of the United States Senate supposedly to help Republican candidates develop the campaign resources they need to gain seats in the United States Senate. The current chairman is Texas Senator John Cornyn.
While the NRSC raises money by claiming to support the election of Republican Senate candidates, in fact RINOs control how the money is spent and in 2012 they announced NRSC would withhold funds from the election of pro-life Todd Akin of Missouri.
Most of the recent leadership of the NRSC has been by Republicans unable or unwilling to win reelection themselves.
The committee was established in 1916, in response to the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment to the constitution which provided for the direct election of Senators. The committee was reorganized and renamed to its current name in 1948.
