NRSC Launches New Web Ad: “Transactions”
WASHINGTON – As President Barack Obama travels to Chicago in an attempt to bail out Democrat Senate hopeful and mob banker Alexi Giannoulias’ struggling campaign with a ritzy fundraiser, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) launched a new Web ad entitled “Transactions.”
The NRSC’s new Web ad evaluates Giannoulias’ questionable record and personal scandals, including his bank loans to unsavory characters and convicted felons Tony Rezko and “Jaws” Giorango, his loss of $150 million after gambling Illinois’ college savings on risky investments, his failure to pay income taxes while demanding tax hikes for Illinois voters, and the federal takeover of his family’s business, Broadway Bank, which cost taxpayers over $390 million.

NRSC Chairman Cornyn Responds To President Obama’s Fundraiser In Illinois For Alexi Giannoulias
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s fundraiser for Democrat Senate hopeful Alexi Giannoulias (D-IL) in Chicago today:
“It will certainly be interesting to hear how President Obama squares his rhetoric slamming fat cat bankers with his decision today to campaign for a candidate who loaned money to the mob, made millions of dollars without paying taxes, and whose risky loan decisions led to a government takeover of his family’s bank.
“President Obama firmly stated earlier this year that ‘bankers don’t need another vote in the United States Senate, yet less than 90 days before the midterm elections, he’s campaigning for a failed mob banker who loaned money to known criminals and lost $150 million of taxpayer dollars after he gambled away Illinois’ college savings. How times have changed for Democrats in Washington.
“After witnessing the lack of accountability and responsibility in Illinois and the reckless spending by Democrats in Washington, voters understand that they need a leader who will instill real change. That’s why we are confident that Illinois voters will elect a proven leader in Mark Kirk to the U.S. Senate this November.”
