The National Republican Senatorial Committee is replacing its finance director due to disappointing fundraising numbers, The Daily Caller confirmed on Wednesday.

Two sources told TheDC on Wednesday that the committee — which is dedicated to electing and re-electing Republican senators — has removed finance director Shelly Carson from the top fundraising position.

The Washington Examiner — which first broke the news – reported that Carson will continue to work as a consultant for the committee.

“Shelly is a valuable member of our team whose strength and skill is working directly with donors and will focus directly on fundraising efforts instead of day-to-day operations,” NRSC spokesperson Brad Dayspring told the Examiner.

The NRSC has raised about $20.3 million this year, in comparison to the $31 million raised by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

According to her biography, Carson is a former aide to former Sen. Jim DeMint’s 2004 Senate campaign and Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign.
