Reviewing the January 2010 fundraising numbers.
The combination of CPAC and a reduced feeling of urgency delayed this for a couple of days, but here are the numbers for January. Short version: RNC over DNC, effective ties (as in, less than 10K/20K differences ) for the Congressional and Senatorial committees, and the Democrats retain their cash-on-hand advantage.
Not all that different from last month’s, although the DSCC & DNC are both probably grateful that revenues were enough to cover for the Scott Brown debacle. The question remains how relevant all of this is: in the last month the ratio of House seats at-risk for the parties has gone from 40D-to-10R to 53D-to-6R. The Democrats’ extra House money will come in handy as emergency funds; but I have to wonder how many emergencies they’re going to have by October. Right now, it looks like… a lot.
PS: I repeat myself:
If it hurts too much, try Reverse the Vote! Specifically targets 24 Congressional Democrats in Red districts, goes straight to the general election candidates, the national committees don’t see a dime.
