The Center for Responsive Politics: What About The Spending?



As we move towards the 2014 mid-terms The Center for Responsive Politics reports Democrats are outpacing Republicans contributions by $86 million dollars. Of particular interest is the major DNC approximate $13 million lag in contributions behind the RNC. 

You and I know the GOP contributors will step-up and make up the spread. While we hate to be party to the reality of "money buys elections", reality is reality and it is good to see contributions from progressives out pace the nation's regressives.
