RNC outraises DNC in November

(CNN) - The Republican National Committee on Tuesday reported bringing in $7.1 million last month, down from $8.5 million raised in October.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee raised $6.5 million, with $10.5 million cash on hand and $7.8 million in debt, according to a Democratic official with knowledge of the numbers.

Despite their drop, the RNC said the $7.1 million figure amounts to the most the group has ever raised during the month of November in an off-year.

"Over the past several months, we have broken multiple records at the RNC, and, as a result, our cash-on-hand now totals $14.1 million," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement, adding that the group now has more cash in the bank than debt.

Over the last month, the RNC said it cut its debt by more than $500,000. In less than 10 months, the group added more than $13.5 million in cash on hand, while retiring almost $11 million in debt, according to the statement.

    It looks like the wealthy are getting worried about losing their sweet heart deal with the republicans on the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

    $7 million has been put into political attacks on Newt and others. Romney is learning the advantage of having swift boaters, Rove, and the Kochs on his side.

    It doesn't matter, thanks to the GOP bought and paid for Supreme Court, Citizens United will provide unlimited money to the GOP.

    Remember corporations are people too, only more important than people because they have more money.

    Can one percent really afford this much more than ninety-nine percent? OF COURSE, when they are taxed at a lower rate.

    You can thank the Supreme Court for this result. They are the legislative hit-men for the Republican Party and the rich. Remember... corporations are people too!
