Yesterday we spoke of the surprisingly poor job the DSCC had done in fundraising so far this cycle.
Well, unfortunately the same can’t be said for their counterparts in the House.
The NRCC raised $5.4 million while spending $4.8 million in May. The DCCC raised $5.1 million and spent about $3.8 million. Since the start of the cycle, the DCCC has raised about $84.6 million to the NRCC’s $66.4 million.
Thanks to their 75 Member advantage in the House right now, this kind of Democratic advantage is understandable. It’s where they should be.
But it’s still disappointing.
The NRCC believes they will be able to make up the difference later in the cycle, and considering the opportunity we have, that just may be true.
Well, at least it better be.
A political environment like this is rare. It can’t be wasted with a massive fundraising shortage that makes it more difficult to get the message out.
