Trump Koozies Bolster Richard Burr's Senate Race

Burr

The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s newly minted Donald Trump koozies are being hocked to fundraise on behalf of their slate of Senate candidates for 2016, including Senator Richard Burr. This is the second time in two weeks that the NRSC’s Trump strategy has been revealed.  Last week, a leaked confidential NRSC memo detailed instructions to Senate incumbents and candidates on implementing Trump-like strategies for their 2016 campaigns.  Trump called the NRSC candidate guide a “compliment.”

“Donald Trump’s hateful, divisive rhetoric and policies are as un-American as they are incendiary. Fundraising on Trump’s hate speech to re-elect Sen. Burr is desperate and outrageous. Sen. Burr has already said, ‘Donald Trump has done a tremendous job. I think Donald Trump has brought a level of passion to running for office that I’m delighted to see.’ Trump and Sen. Burr’s policies would hurt North Carolina. Their agenda would make it harder for North Carolinians to get a quality education, crush women’s access to healthcare, and take away insurance coverage for children of low income families,” said Jessica Mackler, president of American Bridge 21st Century. “Just like the NRSC koozie says, Sen. Burr’s policies show he’s ‘with Trump.'”
