Fundraising Update

Democrats have "lapped" Republicans in recent fundraising efforts, according to the New York Times, which this morning ran an article that detailed the struggles that Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) is facing as she heads the Republican National Senatorial Committee. That article showed that not only are Republicans losing the fundraising battle, but they are failing to field candidates against Democrats who were previously thought to be vulnerable.

The DSCC raised $8.8 million in June, while its GOP counterpart brought in slightly more than half that, at $4.8 million.

Overall, the DSCC has raised $78 million for the midterm elections, almost twice what the RNSC has.

Here are some interesting numbers via Daily Kos.
