You might think that the Dems problem is the DNC
Yesterday I posted this essay about the DNC's epic fundraising woes.
So this morning I did a few searches about the DCCC fundraising.
What I found was the exact opposite story of the DNC.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) last month raised almost $7 million, outpacing its Republican counterpart by approximately $3 million.
The fundraising arm of the House Democrats raised $7.68 million in October, including $2.81 million in online donations, according to numbers released Thursday. DCCC said it was its highest total for the month of October in a non-national election year — in October of 2015, it raised $5.4 million.
The campaign arm of House Democrats has posted its highest off-year August fundraising haul ever, the group told NBC News.
The DCCC raised $6.26 million in August, compared to $4.15 million for August 2015, the last comparable year before a midterm election.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised a record amount of money for the month of May, according to fundraising figures provided exclusively to Roll Call.
According to the fundraising figures, the DCCC raised $6.55 million through its grassroots programs, with $4.5 million coming from online donations, with an average donation of $19.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised more than $9 million in April, breaking its previous fundraising records for the month.
It isn't just the DCCC. Even individual Democratic candidates are crushing it.
Nine of the 10 Democratic senators from states President Trump won raised more than $1 million in the last fundraising quarter, easily outpacing most of their rivals. All 10 have at least $3 million stashed away, and seven of them have more than $5 million cash on hand.
...The House side is even more promising for Democrats in their uphill fight to win back a chamber of Congress next year.
More than 30 incumbent Republicans raised less money than their Democratic challengers from July through September — an occurrence that’s almost unheard of this early in the election cycle — including vulnerable members like Reps. John Culberson (R-TX), Mimi Walters (R-CA) and Steve Knight (R-CA).
So when it comes to fundraising, the DNC is the outlier.
Gosh, I wonder why that could be?
