House GOP debt free, but trails Democrats in money race

Washington (CNN) – The National Republican Congressional Committee has erased a $2 million debt and starts the new year with about $2.7 million in the bank, according to a report that will be filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.

The NRCC's political counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, holds a significant cash advantage over the GOP with $17 million in the bank heading into the 2010 election.

The NRCC will report raising more than $3.2 million last month, while spending about $4.9 million. Of the $4.9 million, $2 million was used to clear the committee of its debt.

    Now that campaign limits have been overturned by the Supreme Court, these numbers are meaningless. Every candidate's opponents now have access to $100 million or more.

    Why even post these meaningless numbers?
