DNC raises $67 million in 2017, half of RNC’s haulThe Democratic National Committee saw a fundraising uptick, but is not close to keeping pace with its GOP counterpart.The Democratic National Committee will report raising $5.2 million in December, bringing its total 2017 fundraising to $67 million, according to paperwork that will be filed Wednesday.That figure includes $1.2 million raised by the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between the national and state parties launched in October, and over $30 million in grass-roots donations —averaging $21 dollars each — overall.The total is slightly ahead of the party's haul in 2013 and 2015, the previous off-years when Democrats had the benefit of a president from their party in the White House. It's far behind the behind the $108 million that the DNC raised in 2011, however.It also badly trails the Republican National Committee, which raised $11.1 million in December for a 2017 total of $132.5 million.The RNC has $38.8 million cash on hand. The DNC will report $6.5 million cash on hand, but its debt is now $6.2 million.
lol @ anyone who thinks Texas turns Blue.
I would add Joe Manchin (WV) to that list but he's turned into a closet conservative and has been highly supportive of Trump's agenda on Taxes and immigration, he knows how to keep his job (though I'm not sure it will help in November).
