NRSC Decides to Back Off in Florida Primary

Looks like Marco Rubio might have pulled off a bit of a victory thanks to the results of New York's 23rd congressional district. Sen. John Cornyn announced yesterday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee won't be inserting itself into primary's anymore. 

Though the NRSC's endorsement still stands, it seems like Cornyn is playing a bit of revisionist history with his words. 

"As far as what's happening in specifically Florida -- we made a decision to endorse Gov. Crist at his request. But we'e really not involved in the primary,"

Cornyn told Politico

But it was Cornyn, head of the NRSC, who originally met with Crist and played a big part in persuading the Governor to forgo re-election in Tallahassee to seek the Senate seat. The NRSC requested Crist to run before he ever requested their endorsement.
