House Democrats Outraise GOP in August

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised about $800,000 more than the National Republican Congressional Committee in August. The House Democratic campaign arm will also report a cash-on-hand advantage in its monthly Federal Election Commission filing, according to a DCCC aide.

House Democrats reported $4.6 million raised last month and $16.1 million in the bank, while House Republicans raised $3.8 million and ended the month with $12.7 million in cash on hand.

Both committees previously eliminated their outstanding debt from the 2012 cycle.

Friday was the deadline for the House campaign committees to report their monthly fundraising hauls.

    Yeah, and it’ll be more in September because we’re pissed as hell at the cuts to SNAP food benefits for poor children, seniors, disabled, & lower rates of enlisted active duty, and out of work vets and civilians.

    For a brief introduction to the primitive superstitions of socialism, I generally refer people to Igor Shafarevich’s brilliant essay Socialism in Our Past and Future: http://www.savageleft.com/poli/hoc.html

    Liberalism is childish.

    Both sides need to be voted out. Enough damage has been done to this country by Congress.

    • Rob_Chapman

      Layla, come on, your response is ridiculous.

      The GOP has no credibility on any public issues.

      They just cut nutrition to raise money for nuclear weapons.

      To say both parties deserve to be voted out is to show monstrous indifference to basic morality.
