    Yeah how much did all the free coverage he got add up to?? Hundreds of millions of dollars.

    I don't expect that the media will make that mistake again.

    RNC reports $41.5 million fundraising haul in first quarter

    RNC reports $41.5 million fundraising haul in first quarter - POLITICO



    This thread is about the DCCC, not the DNC.

    So citing RNC figures isn't exactly a bam.

    What are the DNC figures for comparison?

    Do Republicans have a group comparable to the DCCC so we can compare that?
    Thanks from HayJenn

    This past election saw many hundreds of seats flip from D to R at local, state races. Why should it be any different now?

Then there is the possibility that if Sanders can give the majority to Democrats, he would. I asked you because I am not seeing a predictable outcome myself. Past patterns would go with your view but this may be anything but a normal midterm.
    Well it is a mid-term. As you said though, trying to go by past patterns now has proven to be impossible.

    Again, 14 seats that are up where seats where Clinton won the district vote. So already those 14 are pretty vulnerable. Would just take 10 more to seal the deal.

    Will see what happens when both campaigns go into full swing.

    What states do you think the Democrats could flip in the Senate? Arizona? Nevada? Where do they get a Third? Texas? Now the Democrats have several vulnerable seats to defend. Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconcin, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania are all in play. West Virginia is a done deal. Might as well put a fork in that one.

    Ms. Amelia,

    Good point.

    The NRCC raised $35.6M compared to the $20M the DCCC raised....

    House Dems Smash Fundraising Records Ahead of Midterms

    I thought the Democratic party was dead. Bwahahahaaaa!!!!

    House Democrats have already raised more money in online contributions this year ahead of the midterms than they did during all of 2015, the most recently comparable year, a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee official told NBC News.

    The unusual fundraising haul is the latest sign that President Donald Trump is motivating Democrats in extraordinary ways as the party looks to win back the 24 seats it needs to retake the House of Representatives in next year's midterm elections and put Rep. Nancy Pelosi back in the Speaker's chair.


    The DCCC raised $20 million in online contributions since the start of the year from contributions averaging just $18, according to the group, beating the $19.7 million the committee raised during 2015, the last off-year ahead of an election year.


    The campaign arm of House Democrats said more than 2.2 million people joined the committee's grassroots email lists since the beginning of January, including 156,00 new donors.
