The committee was founded in 1866.[1] According to the NRCC website, the committee:

"...supports the election of Republicans to the House through direct financial contributions to candidates and Republican Party organizations; technical and research assistance to Republican candidates and Party organizations; voter registration, education and turnout programs; and other Party-building activities."[1]

Nick Rahall

See also: West Virginia's 3rd congressional district elections, 2014

In September 2013, the NRCC issued a press release in response to Rahall, one of the organization's main targets in 2014, mistaking an umbrella for a lump of coal during a press conference. The press release stated:

"But Barack Obama, the EPA, and Nick Rahall aren’t waging a war on umbrellas – they are waging a war on coal. And yesterday, Bloomberg reported a new front opening in that war – the EPA is set to issue a rule that will completely halt the development of new coal-fueled plants by requiring they meet unachievable carbon standards."[3]

Fundraising

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee gained an early fundraising advantage in the first quarter of 2013. It outraised the NRCC $22.6 million to $17.5 million.

Additionally, vulnerable Democratic incumbents are leading their endangered Republican counterparts in a majority of races.[4]
