House GOP’s fate tied closely to McCain
By Aaron Blake of THE HILL
The NRCC has relied on McCain at the top of the ballot, because it hasn’t been able to spend nearly as much money on individual races as its Democratic counterpart.
The vast majority of those races are being contested in districts that went for President Bush in 2000 and 2004.
The head of the Republicans’ Senate campaign committee, Sen. John Ensign (Nev.), has been critical of the McCain campaign for its handling of economic issues and its usage of vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
