NRSC’s Sarah Morgan: Every Democrat Should Be Worried
AR Intel had the opportunity to sit down with Sarah Morgan, the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s (NRSC) political director late last week for a wide-ranging discussion about key Senate races across the country and the committee’s role in helping Republican candidates win in November.
With just six months to go until Election Day, the NRSC feels confident and prepared for the dozen or so closely watched Senate races taking place this cycle. Ten Democrats are up for reelection in states won by President Trump in 2016, and that’s a big difference from the 2016 cycle, Morgan’s first at the committee.
