More momentum than money for the NRSC and NRCC
Fund-raising numbers for the GOP's House and Senate campaign committees reveal an excited donor base that hasn't yet made up the deficit with Democrats. The National Republican Senatorial Committee took in $6 million in March and had $15 million in the bank when the month ended; the National Republican Congressional Committee raised $8 million in March and has a $10 million war chest.
As Reid Wilson points out, those numbers put the GOP committees behind the Democrats. In March, the month of health care reform, the House Democrats raised $9.7 million. But this is happening while GOP candidates, individually, raise more money than Democrats. The incumbent party can brag about its bigger numbers; the GOP can point to the trends.
