$11.2 million for GOP Congressional group

(CNN) - The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) says they raised $11.2 million in the month of September.

"For the past seven weeks, the NRCC has outspent the DCCC on the air and we will continue to do everything within our power to retire House Speaker Nancy Pelosi," Ken Spain, NRCC Communications Director said.

The NRCC said they are looking to spend $50 million in approximately 65 districts. The September 2010 figure is the best month for the NRCC since September 2006, when it raised $11.9 million.

But the announcement comes as outside groups are also making a significant mark on fundraising for the November midterm elections.

CNN has reached out to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee regarding their monthly numbers.

    oops, edit:

    Hmmmm...now...let's see an article about the $885K (at least) that the Chamber of Commerce receives FROM FOREIGN-BASED CORPORATE ENTITIES and then uses to fund its attack ads.

    "Mr. Speaker Boehner"... get used to it.

    Hey Pelosi... I'll send you a $200 donation if you let me help clean out your belongings from the Speaker's office.

    Jeez, Republicans are more concerned with settling a score with Pelosi then they are solving the countries problems.

    I have already reached the point of campaign ad overload. I mute or change the channel on every one of them. It's been a challenge (they are popping up everywhere) but ignoring them helps with the whole sanity thing.

    The citizens of the USA have a choice: vote for more of the failed Socialist "change" like ObamaCareless and Stimulust. OR vote for more freedom and liberty like what made our country great!

    On November 2nd, vote American, vote Conservative, vote Republican.

    Lost battle, they won't be able to retire Nancy Pelosi because people want her to stay in hopes that she will mail a monthly check to them along with Federal goodies and they don't have work again. These people still want Pelosi to push Obama to open those bank accounts of rich and wealthy Americans and distribute their money among the poor and middle class.
