The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $6 million in May, according to an NRCC aide — $1.3 million less than the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised in the same period.

The NRCC’s monthly haul brings its total cash on hand to $35.2 million — $10.7 million less than what the DCCC has in the bank.

Part of the DCCC’s fundraising success is rooted in their online fundraising. The DCCC brought in $2.3 million in May from its online fundraising operation, a large chunk of the committee’s $7.3 million monthly haul.

The committees use these funds to support candidates in the fall midterms.

Last month, the DCCC reserved $43.5 million in television airtime for the fall, while the NRCC reserved $30 million. The committees are likely to add to those totals as the cycle progresses.

    Those who advocate incremental property confiscation in the name of “fairness” are as much a threat to liberty as their Marxist forefathers.

  • George Kato

    If one claims that government should reduce discontent due to envy, one will also claim that the state must reduce the liberty which leads to unequal incomes and associated envy.

    Furthermore, if we are to be free, our monetary rewards must result from the usefulness of our efforts rather than subjective judgments from others regarding our merits.
