Dialing for Dollars

So far, the latest figures show that the Democratic Party machinery has outraised its Republican counterpart in this campaign cycle by almost $270 million.

And even when outside spending on television advertising and direct mail is added to the mix, Republicans still haven’t closed the gap.

The money race totals come to $856 million for the Democratic committees and their aligned outside groups, compared to $677 for their Republican adversaries, based on figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

    They are wasting millions on races such as MN-6. Apparently, donors will give a lot of money to defeat Michelle Bachmann, even though there is very little chance that she will be unseated.
