MS-01 - Good money after bad

The National Republican Campaign Committee spent nearly one-fifth of its cash on hand to defend one "safe" GOP House seat in Mississippi... and lose.

The NRCC’s investment was particularly painful given its stark cash disadvantage with less than six months to go until the November election.

The NRCC had just $7.2 million in the bank as of March 31. It spent $1.3 million in Mississippi.

The Democratic majority in the House has now expanded to 236-199.
NRCC Chair Tom Cole wasn't kidding when he told House Republicans a couple of weeks ago that they are on their own this year.
