Cornyn pledges NRSC's help to Sharron Angle

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has committed its "full resources" to help Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R) win in November, according to Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), NRSC chairman.

"I have made it clear that Sharron and her campaign will have the full resources and support from the NRSC and from my Republican colleagues in order to ensure her victory against Harry Reid this November," he said in a statement. "I look forward to welcoming her into our ranks next year."

Angle didn't receive any contributions in 2010 from sitting members, according to her Federal Election Commission filings.

Cornyn met with Angle earlier on Tuesday as part of her first trip to Washington since claiming a surprise victory in last week's Senate primary. The Texan said Angle was in the process of "assembling a strong general election campaign team."

During the primary, she ran a grassroots effort with little campaign infrastructure. Angle will face Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in November.
