Republicans need to pick up six seats to control the Senate, but losing a GOP-held seat in Georgia would be a blow to their efforts. The group is a joint fundraising committee between the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and we're told both groups will likely divvy up the funds to back the GOP nominee and target Democratic frontrunner Michelle Nunn. The invite also said the money will be used to support get-out-the-vote efforts and voter registration to drive turnout.
On the invitation below, note the minimum $10,000 donation for the reception and $25,000 give to attend the gala. That high price tag was meant to zero in on the big fish, and avoid competing with the fundraising efforts of the five best-known GOP candidates: Reps. Jack Kingston, Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey; former Secretary of State Karen Handel; and businessman David Perdue. We're told none of the candidates, by the way, were at the shindig.
