Both Representative Pete Sessions (R-32) and Senator John Cornyn are having a terrible week as chairmen of their respective campaign committees. A few days ago, National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) Chairman Sessions was dealt a serious blow when the Republican candidate for a special election in New York conceded defeat even after the NRCC invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into the Republican leaning seat. John Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) may have trumped Sessions today, as he lost a member of the Republican caucus when Arlen Specter left the Republican Party. Cornyn, who had recently endorsed Specter for the 2010 election, will likely be stuck trying to unseat the incumbent Democratic Specter with an extreme right-wing candidate (Source: The Hill, April 14, 2009).
