In a new radio ad, the Republican National Committee tells voters in New York's 23rd Congressional District that their choice Tuesday will "echo" from Albany to Washington. It's an effective message, but it's also ironic, coming from the same party vessel that endorsed the candidate who dropped out -- and from the party that spent $1 million on said dropped-out candidate. Apparently, the message has already echoed in Michael Steele's office...  Note: the National Republican Congressional Committee spent the $1 million and not the RNC headquarters organization itself.
