WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) – Because “friends and foes” view President Barak Obama’s America as weak, people should donate to the Republican National Committee, says U.S. Sen. John McCain.



On Monday, the RNC sent out a mass email to supporters containing a letter from the Republican senator from Arizona, in which he blasted the president.

“President Obama’s policies continue to cost millions of Americans jobs and access to health care,” McCain says in the email.

“When the world needs American leadership, our President fails to lead. As a result, friends and foes alike are coming to see America as weak, unreliable and lacking credibility. Americans deserve better.”

The solution to curing America’s weakened image? More Republicans in office, he says.

“With conservative leaders, we can redirect our course,” McCain says. “We can place our country on a stronger, more secure and prosperous path. And we can advance the American ideals that have given us the world’s most dynamic economy, effective military and thriving democracy.”

In the email, McCain says he reached out to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and was informed the RNC has an urgent FEC fundraising Monday deadline and is still short $61,983 of its goal.

“If you’re as frustrated with Obama and his policies as I am, donate $24 to the RNC today before the urgent deadline at midnight tonight to end the era of Obama’s agenda by gaining a Republican majority in the Senate,” McCain says.

“With Republican leaders in control of the Senate, we can block Obama’s radical agenda and effectively end his errors during his final two years in office. But we can’t do it alone—we need you to join us in this effort.”

The RNC reported that it raised $8.2 million in May and more than $123 million so far in the 2014 election cycle.
