Republican National Committee Kicks In $2 Million For Saxby Chambliss

It looks like the GOP is serious as a heart attack at keeping Senator Saxby in office.

Sen. John Ensign said Wednesday that the Republican National Committee (RNC) has transferred $2 million earmarked for the Senate runoff in Georgia to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which was $4 million in debt after Election Day.
