Republican National Committee seeks documents on Benghazi

The political arm of the Republican Party is seeking any emails and documents that might exist between the State Department and President Obama's re-election campaign about the deadly assault last year in Benghazi, Libya. 

The Republican National Committee said Thursday it sent a request under the Freedom of Information Act for material between Sept. 11 -- the day of the attack -- and Nov. 7 -- the day after Obama's re-election. 

The RNC is seeking anything containing the words Libya or Benghazi. 

The attack killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. 

Republicans are accusing the Obama administration of misleading Americans about the assault. It's a crucial issue for conservatives, the GOP voters who will be vital in next year's midterm elections.
