RNC pushes back

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
The Republican National Committee has been on the defensive this week because of some questionable expenditures.

But it is pushing back today by sending around a list of what the Democratic National Committee has spent money on, including more than $2 million on luxury hotels and caterers, $75,000 for car services, and $262,000 for "other events" at the Kennedy Center, Fenway Park, and a D.C. nightclub.

An e-mail for response to the DNC was not immediately returned. We will update when we hear back.
