The GOP is now calling for either the resignation or firing of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The Republican National Committee is launching a two-week "robo-call" campaign in efforts to nationalize Senate races across battleground states, arguing that each race will serve less as an individual contest and more as a referendum on the leadership of Reid.
The GOP now hopes to use those examples to build a case against Harry Reid and argue that his procedural stranglehold is the reason for the Senate's painful levels of gridlock.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Reid, a Nevada Democrat has quickly lost favor by Republicans this year. An outspoken opponent of the GOP, he has labeled the party as obstructionist and beholden to such wealthy conservatives like Charles and David Koch.
Reid has also ignored bills sent over from the House this year and sheltered vulnerable Senate Democrats from voting on contentious legislation proposed by the GOP.
The GOP now hopes to use those examples to build a case against Reid and argue that his procedural stranglehold is the reason for the Senate's painful levels of gridlock.
"The only way to stop President Obama's agenda and to get jobs bills out of Congress is to fire Harry Reid. And the way to fire Harry Reid is to support your Republican Senate candidate. It doesn't matter who the Democrat candidate is. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Harry Reid," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.
The GOP's successful email and social media campaigns specifically targeting Reid have led them to expand the effort to robo-calling. The official said voters' distaste for the leadership in the Democratically-controlled Senate is beginning to show up in polling.
The robo-calls will target households across a spectrum of Senate races, some close and others deemed safe for Democrats. The calls will go out in Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Virginia, Iowa, Michigan, West Virginia and South Dakota.
The call script identifies each Democratic lawmaker running for the Senate - mostly incumbents, but also a pair of House members running for higher office - as a "rubber stamp" for President Barack Obama and Reid.
"President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have blocked hundreds of bills that would spur job creation," the calls will say. "It's time to fire Harry Reid. It's time to vote against [name of Democratic candidate]."
