Encyclopedia > National Republican Senatorial Committee

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is the Republican Hill committee for the United States Senate, working to elect Republicans to that body. Its current chair is Senator Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina. In November 2004, Dole narrowly edged out Norm Coleman (28 votes to 27 within the Senate Republican caucus) to head the NRSC following the departure of Senator George Allen of Virginia. The NRSC was founded in 1916 as the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. It was reorganized in 1948, and renamed the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
