Dems raking in the cash
In a surprising development, Democrats are raising more campaign cash than Republicans in several key House races. GOPers still had more cash on hand, but the fact that Dems are getting more cash than Republicans after years of GOP domination in fundraising is a boost for them heading into November. Is this an early sign of a Democratic sweep of Congress? No. But it shows that the Dem momentum from the Foley scandal and the other GOP mishaps is real - and growing. That Jim Gerlach is trailing in the fundraising numbers is troubling for the GOP, considering that he was seen as one of their stronger candidates - after an early stumble - heading into the midterms.
