If anyone is wondering how on Earth Barack Obama and company were able to outspend every other previous President combined, look no further than the current state of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
As President Trump issued his first State of the Union address with 45.8 million Americans tuning in, those at the DNC were busy filing their December FEC report. Surely, Democrats were hoping President Trump distracted Americans from the poor management their FEC filing has displayed.
The DNC was only able to raise 5.2 million in the month of December. Current cash on hand, as reported by the DNC, comes to 6.3 million. Debt was reported to be a staggering 6.1 million. This puts the DNC roughly $200,000 away from being considered insolvent.
To give some prospective on these figures we can compare with the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) December FEC filing.
The RNC was able to raise 11.1 million in the month of December. Current cash on hand, as reported by the RNC, comes to 38.8 million. Debt was reported to be 0.
Clearly there is a stark difference in money management between these two parties.
Surely this report reveals that Americans should be thrilled that Donald Trump is running the country as opposed to any of the Democrats that have contributed to this disastrous FEC filing. According to Donna Brazile, she discovered similar issues when she was appointed to Chair the DNC after Debbi Wasserman-Schultz was forced out.
It seems the Democrats will have a very difficult time taking back the House of Representatives without a national campaign headed by the DNC. Without adequate support from the DNC, the politicians they support will be much more vulnerable than their Republican counterparts. Paving the way and making it possible, maybe likely, the Republican Party maintains the House in the 2018 mid-term elections. One thing is very clear, Democrats have a lot of money to raise in a very short period of time.
