DNC Money Machine Whomps RNC

Share

And as we all know, if you got the money, you got the election.

The DNC filed its repot last night, indicating that it had raised $6.5 million for March and 20.6 million for the quarter, about $3 million more than the RNC's total. And that was before Obama himself kicked into re-election fundraising gear, as he has this week.

The Democrats have their own challenges. The small-dollar energy of 2008 hasn't ignited. And some major Democrat donors, too, have been alienated; Obama certainly hasn't offered the kind of donor maintenance that Bill Clinton did, and there have also been fewer (though some) jobs for donors and other supporters. Obama's campaign, for instance, raised more in the first quarter of 2007 than the DNC did this quarter, despite having much lower limits.

Still, the DNC now has about three times the RNC's cash on hand, with $9.7 million, and a bit less debt. And the RNC has probably gotten the breathing room it could (and that it genuinely deserved) out of the Steele aftermath.

    This is great news because it shows enthusiasm on our side but ......The corporate money will be flowing in because of citizens united. We must get out and educate people. Someone should set up a website, " adopt a right winger" and educate them. Find ways to wean them off listening to people who don't really care about them and represent the interests of the rich. If every progressive did that we could fight back.
