House Dems outraise Republicans for Aug.
While it’s never a sure thing sometimes where the actual money is going can be a leading indicator of who will win biggest in the coming election.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) outraised the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in August and narrowly leads it in overall fundraising for the year to date.
The DCCC raised $3.6 million last month to the NRCC’s $3 million. For 2011, the DCCC has raised $41.3 million to the NRCC’s $40.4 million, although it trails the NRCC in cash on hand.
It is unusual for the minority party to outraise the party in power.
