DNC announces it raised nearly $28 million in July

(CNN) – The Democratic National Committee raised $27.7 million in the month of July, according to an e-mail Saturday from Karen Finney, the DNC’s Director of Communications.

“The strong fundraising numbers are a testament to Barack Obama's message of change and hope and his vision for America's future,” Finney wrote in the message.

The July number includes donations to the DNC proper; the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising endeavor between the DNC and the Obama campaign; and the Democratic White House Victory Fund, a joint fundraising endeavor between the DNC, the Obama campaign, and the presidential campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton.

The Republican National Committee announced Friday that it raised $26 million in July.

    This is the first time i've seen the DNC out raise the RNC.

    Obama always kicks McCain's butt despite all the lobbyist money going to McCain.

    Bit with the DNC now outraising the RNS, the Senate and house dems are also outraising the GOP.

    Looks like it is time to turn the page.
