DNC & RNC dueling to a draw


The Republican National Committee bested the Democratic National Committee in the fund-raising battle for the month of November. But when all is said and done, the two organizations are on a nearly equal footing.

According to CQ Politics, the DNC picked up $5.9M during the month, compared to the RNC’s total of $6.4M. DNC’s YTD total stood at $79.3M, a good bit south of the RNC’s YTD total of $84.3M.

When it comes to cash on hand, DNC has a significant lead, $13.2M to the RNC’s $8.7M.

But DNC is also carrying $4.9M in debt, while the RNC is debt-free. That takes the DNC’s net down to about $8.5M, a scant $100K ahead of its rival.
