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
DNC 6.89 15.34 5.33
NRSC 3.10 5.10 0.00
DSCC 2.20 6.70 2.90
NRCC 3.15 4.20 2.00
DCCC 3.30 10.73 4.67
GOP 14.12 30.27 2.00
Dem 12.39 32.77 12.90

The good news for the Democrats is that they’re still maintaining a slight cash-on-hand advantage overall and a decent one on the Congressional level… if you ignore their debt, which they at least seem determined to do.  A comparison of this time last cycle

Raised CoH Debts
RNC 5.06 16.02 0.00
DNC 4.62 4.69 2.00
NRSC 2.36 7.12 0.00
DSCC 2.58 20.64 3.50
NRCC 2.54 1.40 3.95
DCCC 3.50 22.13 3.08
GOP 9.96 24.54 3.95
Dem 10.70 47.46 8.58

…shows pretty much what we’ve been seeing to date: the Democrats are not dominating the financial arena like they were this time in 2007.  That’s not good news for a party in power.

But since complacency is a bad idea:

NRCC donation page.
NRSC donation page.
