Fundraising, for most members up in 2012, has yet to become a priority. Some of these members may be considering retirement, while others appear to be wagering that fundraising can wait. Either way, some of their bank accounts are unlikely to scare off would-be challengers. And history shows that a well-prepared incumbent stands a much-better chance at getting reelected.
