Skip to comments.Democratic National Committee fundraising hits wall as GOP sits flush ahead of midterm elections
Posted on 02/04/2018 1:09:43 PM PST by markomalley
The Democratic National Committee entered the midterm elections year "dead broke," with a paltry $400,000 in party coffers, according to federal records.
The committee finished 2017 with roughly $6.5 million in available cash and about $6.1 million in debt, according to recently released Federal Election Commission filings. That leaves a balance of just $422,582 to start a year that will culminate in midterm elections, in which Democrats are hoping to recapture a majority in the House.
The DNCs fundraising challenges have been well known since shortly after the 2016 elections, when President Trump defeated front-running Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The committee has been rocked by turmoil, including the resignation of chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz amid leaked emails some say showed DNC brass "rigged" the primaries so Clinton would defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders.
In addition, the selection in February 2017 of former Obama administration official Tom Perez to replace Wasserman Schultz, over Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, sparked discord about the party continuing to hew to its establishment power base. More recently, the DNC has emerged as a key figure in the Russia collusion investigation, amid revelations it helped fund the so-called anti-Trump dossier that apparently led, at least in part, to the start of the probe.

Don’t believe this....the Democrats have almost ALL the BILLIONAIRES and MILLIONAIRES money to LIE with!
Money will flood in when people realize how deep the corruption goes. [/s]
Of course it’s not going to raise any money when the first plank in its platform is: WE HATE WHITE PEOPLE.
Its still way early.
Foreign Countries the Dems(only place to get money) are scared ,LOL
Donors don’t want to squander the windfall they’ve received from the Trump tax reform and the pumped up economy.
They could try the ad campaigns used by the ASPCA, a disabled veterans group, and various children-with-diseases organizations. Get a narrator with a weepy voice verging on breakup for the voice-over. Instrumental music designed for the suicidal to make the final decision right now, and videos of destitute looking well know democratic figures sitting on curbs and going through dumpsters behind a McDonald’s. The common ingredient is the requested amount of only $19.00 per month. That’s just sixty eight cents per day.
We need to discuss strategies online for bleeding their coffers dry.
I want them to DEFAULT bigly. The loss to those that they owe will have a lot of influence.
President Trump—while his popularity is on the upswing—needs to do everything possible to nationalize the 2018 midterms against the crooked Democrats, to ensure that they get obliterated, because his Presidency will be at serious risk if the Democrats (the party of Perjury and Obstruction of Justice) win the House.
It is not enough to elect people in R jerseys if they are Bush League Republicans hell bent on amnesty for 30 million new Democrats.
AZ is being set up to elect Flakes replacement as Amnesty Senator.
The Bush League Republicans are using Joe Arpaios ego to crowd out Kelli Ward, who is the reason Flake is quitting.
They want to sneak in McSally.
Maybe send them 2 or 3 cents by credit card. ...the process fees are greater than that.
bedtime stories by granny Clinton.. then you know they've crashed and
Can’t beat somebody with nobody. The big sugar daddies are holding out for the RIGHT recipients upon which to bestow their largesse, and the current crop of retreads and aged-out hippies may not be the effective representatives of their vision for America to come to fruition.
Their problem is not that there are none, but the complicating factors of the operations like the Clinton Crime Syndicate tend to skew the distribution of this cash flow away from what, in the minds of these plutocrats and oligarchs, are more viable and attractive candidates. Crony capitalism works, but only with the RIGHT cronies.
Dont believe this....the Democrats have almost ALL the BILLIONAIRES and MILLIONAIRES money to LIE with!
Wait to they find out that President Trump turned off their Saudi money spigot. They will have to go hat in hand to the Chinese who are having their own money problems.
