DNC doles out $2.5 million

(CNN) – The Democratic National Committee said Wednesday that it has transferred a total of $2.5 million to three state party arms as well as its House and Senate affiliates.

The DNC transferred $833,333 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, $833,333 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, $100,000 to the Maryland Democratic Party, $400,000 to the Florida Democratic Party and $333,333 to the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, a DNC official told CNN.

Earlier this month, the DNC transferred its first $2 million as part of the national party committee's $50 million Vote 2010 plan.

It is the second such infusion to go to the state of Florida, which received $333,333 in the first payout.

Florida, Maryland and Pennsylvania are all home to hotly contested governors races.

    I certainly hope they are more worried about the Senate and the House than the governors. The next time I get a call I will have to remember these figures!

    Since the bush Supreme Court ruled that unlimited amounts can be spent and that foreign money can be used in our elections I just wish the DNC had millions more to give out. The Robert's Court will make it possible for the repuglicans to buy any election! What a disgrace to America! Conservatives you should agree!

    $$$ is why we need to revert to the way senators were seated before Wilson. They were appointed by the state governments. That way senators put the interest of their state above that of the political party.

    This article just shows how (in this case) the democratic party is buying a rubber stamp for their unsustainable policies.

    The party system is killing the American way of life.

    Democrats are done come November, America is watching as this BOZO refuses to enforce our laws, aides sanctuary cities and prevents States rights from being lawfully conducted. America now sees you Progressive Libtards for what you are and they do not like what they see. Americans pay taxes to take care of their own, not some illegal ticks that have come to suck our blood because their own country sucks. What do you think 20 million people cost in social services, that is more than the entire population of the State of Florida. If they work low paying minimum wage jobs how much of a social security contribution do you think they pay? If they don't own houses they don't pay property taxes, if they don't pay property taxes they don't pay for their kids educations in our public schools, we do, who suffers, American children. If they don't have healthcare insurance who do you think funds the birth of their anchor babies and fixes them up after a night of tequila, you wonder why our schools suck and our healthcare costs have shot through roof. America has lost its mind!
