The National Republican Senatorial Committee is also raising money for a recount. Here's the message sent by NRSC Chair John Ensign:
Thanks to your critical support our Senate firewall held up against a tidal wave of liberal attack ads and the Obama Get-Out-The-Vote machine.
But the fight goes on ... as three Senate races have yet to be decided:
Georgia's Senate race is headed for a December 2nd runoff.
Minnesota's Senate race (the race angry, liberal Al Franken is trying to win) is headed for a costly recount. Norm Coleman is leading, but Franken's lawyers are already crying foul.
Votes are still being counted in Alaska.
The liberals are mobilizing an army of lawyers in Minnesota and Alaska to try to steal these seats they could not win outright on Election Day. And MoveOn.org is sure to add to the $217,741 they raised to help elect a Barack Obama rubberstamp.
We need your help to save Republican Senate seats in Minnesota, Alaska and to pay for a costly runoff election in Georgia.
