Trump Koozies Bolster Roy Blunt's Senate Race

Dec 10, 2015



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 Roy Blunt. 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. Blunt is desperate and outrageous. Sen. Blunt already has enough issues with his national security record without Trump at the top of the ticket, but he has yet to condemn the frontrunner, even after his call to ban Muslims. Trump and Sen. Blunt’s policies would hurt Missouri. Their agenda would make it harder for Missourians 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. Blunt’s policies show he’s ‘with Trump.'”
