Senator McConnell rejecting negative GOP pitch.

The Senate's top Republican says he didn't
like a recent GOP appeal to party donors that was based on stoking
fear and negative feelings toward President Barack Obama and other
Democrats.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says he
doesn't understand why anyone thought such an appeal would help the
GOP.
The pitch last month to Republican fundraisers included a direct
call to exploit "extreme negative feelings" toward Democrats. In
the presentation, Obama was depicted as "The Joker" and House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi as Cruella De Vil.
McConnell tells ABC's "This Week" that it's up to the
Republican National Committee to hold someone responsible for the
controversial appeal. He says, "I don't like it and I don't know
anybody who does."
