Businesses Noticing that Repubs Don’t Like Them Very Much?
Devious mind that I possess, I loved Moe Lane’s post about some business leaders finally waking up to how the Dems are genuinely ‘out to get’ businesses of any size. Those of us who operate companies a bit smaller than Verizon have felt the serious threat for a long, long time now. Some businesses have already gone under, ya notice? Respectfully, I would take Moe’s | Read More »
1Q 2010: Crist raises 1.1 million to Rubio’s 3.6.
It’s not your time, Governor. Via Hot Air: Allahpundit independently makes the same suggestion… If I were Crist, here’s what I’d do. First, I’d dial up Jeb Bush and ask him whether there’s any chance whatsoever that he’ll endorse me. If he says no (which seems likely), either because he’s backing Rubio or staying out of the race, then I’d dial up Rubio and offer | Read More »
More Right-Wing Conspiracy Needed: Focus and Fundraising is a MUST for Republicans
Today the Wall Street Journal reports on the ancillary arms the right is developing to catch up with the 527’s and union-laden liberal organizations like America Coming Together (ACT), Media Fund, Catalyst, moveon.org, and Organizing for America (notice how the left exploits the word “American,” when it seems to distain anything vaguely identifiable as American?) on the left. One new conservative development is Meet American | Read More »
Schilling raises over $25,000 in his “Kill the Bill” Money-bomb
Bobby Schilling, a relatively unknown candidate for Congress in the Illinois 17th against Rep. Phil Hare, held a “kill the bill” money bomb that raised over $25,000. The drive was announced about 2 weeks ago and ended last night at midnight. From the FEC report, it looks like Schilling has barely raised $89,000 total for his campaign. His latest COH has him at $44,000. This | Read More »
Reviewing the February 2010 Fundraising numbers.
Well, well, well. Short version? All three Republican national committees raised more than their Democratic counterparts for the first time in… well, a while. A while. Raised CoH Debts RNC 7.69 9.46 0.00 DNC 7.42 10.74 3.72 NRSC 4.60 12.86 0.00 DSCC 4.00 14.30 0.42 NRCC 5.08 6.06 0.00 DCCC 4.35 19.82 0.67 GOP 17.37 28.38 0.00 Dem 15.77 44.86 4.81
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. Raised CoH Debts RNC 10.53 9.48 0.00 DNC 9.19 10.20 4.68 NRSC 5.01 10.65 | Read More »
Reviewing the December Fundraising Numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: RNC above DNC, DNC took a big cash on hand hit, NRSC over DSCC in the biggest shocker, NRCC/DCCC more or less the same, DCCC has a big CoH advantage, and blessed if I know how much any of this means, post-Citizens’ United and post-Brown. Raised CoH Debts RNC 6.84 8.42 0.00 DNC 4.54 8.67 4.69 NRSC 4.10 8.30 | Read More »
Reviewing the November Fundraising Numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: the RNC & NRSC beat out their Democratic counterparts – which is odd, considering that they’re the groups giving the Republican base the most aggravation; the NRCC pulled in less than the DCCC; the Democrats have a pretty good COH advantage (although the RNC spent a bunch of money in November); and the Democrats apparently aren’t planning to retire | Read More »
Reviewing the October fundraising numbers.
As promised. Short version: DNC beat RNC, NRSC edged DSCC, DCCC edged NRCC, and cash on hand would worry me more if the GOP hadn’t just removed the NJ & VA governorships from the Democrats and essentially handed NY-23 as part of a unfortunate but necessary life lesson to the GOP leadership. RNC 9.06 11.29 0.00 DNC 11.58 12.96 4.40 NRSC 4.00 5.80 0.00 DSCC | Read More »
The GOP’s Fundraising Problems, Written In Bold
Erick threw up a couple of posts earlier today about the woes the NY GOP is experiencing with Dede Scozzafava (here and here), and in mid-post, Moe illustrated the effect of Erick’s cause. As evidenced by the massive turnout by Conservatives in TEA parties across the land, the GOP’s base is much more energized than the Democrats’. So why is the GOP still behind the | Read More »
Help a Conservative raise some fundage…
One of our best and brightest bloggers is having a Fund Drive. He does this because he cannot find the money men to support his dream of a Conservative G.O.P. The reason he cannot is because it appears those with the money are those same RINO’s WE are consistently griping about. Much has been written recently of the “disconnect” between the GRASSROOTS & the National | Read More »
Reviewing the September fundraising numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: RNC beat DNC, but DSCC & DCCC significantly outraised their counterparts – sufficiently so that the Democrats raised more overall for the month. When debt is factored in, the Democrats also went from being significantly behind on cash-on-hand to being slightly ahead. That being said: the RNC and NRCC are both reporting significant increases in small-person donors. Raised CoH | Read More »
The Washington Post catches up with me on the fundraising story. Yes, *me*.
A regular reader of mine might be forgiven for wondering why there’s any sort of surprised tone in this Washington Post article. Democrats Are Jarred by Drop In Fundraising Democratic political committees have seen a decline in their fundraising fortunes this year, a result of complacency among their rank-and-file donors and a de facto boycott by many of their wealthiest givers, who have been put | Read More »
Reviewing the August Fundraising numbers.
Wouldn’t you know it: I decide not to do anything consequential and the fundraising numbers become available. Short version: the GOP out-raised the Democrats for the first time since April; the NRSC beat out the DSCC for the second month; the NRCC continues to stay essentially tied with the DCCC; and the Democrats aren’t paying their debt down. Raised CoH Debts RNC 7.87 20.97 0.00 | Read More »
Fitting the Pieces for Mike Huckabee
The excitement this morning on Twitter seems all about Mike Huckabee. There has been no doubt in my mind that he never stopped running for President after conceding the nomination to John McCain last year. He just changed which Presidential election he was running in. Which is why it was such a huge (but very silly, given the timing) argument late last year over who | Read More »
