Fundraising Comparisons

No question that the RNC has trounced the DNC in fundraising, with the Republicans finishing February with $25M cash on hand versus about $4.7M for the Democrats. That figure ought to stand by itself.

But the moment Republicans try to make any further comparisons.... they might want to note that the presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain has less cash on hand than the DNC -- $3.7M when his debts are taken into account. Clinton and Obama raised more than $80M last month combined. If you add their totals to the DNC's total, then the Democratic general election machine outraised the Republican election machine.

As I resume light posting.... where has McCain's small donor base gone?
