The Republican National Committee’s financial woes are forcing the Republican Governors Association to spend millions of dollars for voter-turnout efforts that would normally be provided by the RNC, according to RGA Chairman Haley Barbour. The committee’s finances have wilted under the leadership of Chairman Michael Steele.

Haley barbour RNC RGA money woes election 2010“We have to come up with about $10 million that normally would have been pushed into the governors races in various directions, largely through state parties," Mississippi Gov. Barbour told reporters at a breakfast in Washington, Politico reports.

The RNC’s financial predicament means that the RGA and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have to find money not just for TV ads as usual, but also the grassroots spending typically provided by the RNC. “It appears the RNC won’t be able to put as much money into state party get-out-the-vote operations as they have in the past,” Barbour said.
