NRSC, DSCC spin Johnson win

Leaders of the U.S. Senate campaign committees are already spinning tonight's primary results to their benefit.

"With less than 50 days until the midterm elections, I am confident that Wisconsin’s Senate seat presents a prime pick-up opportunity for our party this November -– and our country’s respected political analysts agree," wrote U.S. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the NRSC chairman, in a memo to GOP leaders.

"Public surveys show that Ron Johnson has been neck-and-neck with Senator Feingold for several months, and Rasmussen Reports’ most recent survey showed Johnson holding a 1-point lead. Johnson also out-raised Feingold by a significant margin in July and August 2010, not including the significant investment that he has made of his own personal funds."

The chairman of the DSCC, meanwhile, linked Johnson's win to Christine O’Donnell's upset victory tonight in the Delaware GOP primary. U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey wrote in a memo that Johnson and O'Donnell join Tea Party-backed candidates in other states who will prove out-of-touch for their states.

"Wisconsin Republicans are now running an extremist candidate who cares more about imposing a strict social doctrine than addressing the economic challenges working people face today," Menendez wrote.
