NRSC Will Link Incumbent Democrats to Obama Agenda

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Jerry Moran released a memo Tuesday warning that  his committee “is ready to capitalize” on President Barack Obama’s “aggressively liberal and partisan” second-term agenda

In his lengthiest statement since taking the helm of the NRSC, Moran cites Louisiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, South Dakota, Arkansas and Alaska as examples of states where the committee will actively highlight ties between the president and the Democratic incumbent or candidate.

The NRSC released the Kansas Republican’s memo ahead of Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

“The reality is while President Obama and his team burns the political capital that he believes was earned last November, he is lighting an inferno under the electoral prospects for a number Democratic Senate candidates in 2014,” Moran wrote.

Meanwhile, Democratic opposition research firm American Bridge released a video Tuesday morning that features news clips covering Republican infighting. The clips are largely related to a new GOP effort to help nominate the strongest Senate candidates possible, which invited immediate criticism from conservative corners of the party.
