If this is true, I may owe the NRSC an apology:
In mid-December, the National Republican Senatorial Committee conducted a poll that showed Brown trailing by only 13 points, but it kept the results to itself. Coakley continued operating on the assumption that for all intents and purposes she had won the seat with the Dec. 8 primary, a common assumption in the state known as the bluest of the blue.
I previously criticized the NRSC for failing to fund Brown’s campaign. If it simply was playing its cards close to the vest, fearful that putting money in would wake up the Democrats too early, then NRSC played a masterful hand. Which would make the December storyline that Brown was on his own without GOP support a masterful ruse.
If it’s true.
