DNC raises $11.5 million in July

Washington (CNN) - The Democratic National Committee raised $11.5 million in July and heads into the fall with nearly $11 million in the bank, a Democratic official told reporters Thursday morning.

DNC Chairman Tim Kaine will announce the fundraising totals at the committee's summer meeting that begins Thursday in St. Louis. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the figures have yet to be formally released, said the committee also carries $3.5 million in debt headed into the general election. Last month, the DNC also transferred $3.5 million to state parties, the official said.

The Republican National Committee has not yet released its July fundraising totals.

    It is so funny that the media continue to thinks the Democrats are not that enthusiastic about voting in Nov. Well you couldn't tell by the money they are raising.

    And the media keep saying the Republicans are so enthusiastic, but you couldn't tell by the money they have not been able to raise.

    MEDIA and polls are trying to convenience everybody that the Democrat voters are not going to come out and vote; well we will just have to see. HYPE is want sells and the media and the polls have been selling nothing but HYPE up stories. The only poll that will count will be in Nov.

    Of course they have. Its kick backs from that 25% increase in government jobs that the incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady administration of the greatest idiot in American history has created. Can you imagine how much in kickbacks Obozo union bosses have gotten.

    They spend so much time, stressing money, it is obvious they think they can BUY their election. They are in for a rude awakening.

    Great, but with the Robert's court allowing unlimited funds for campaigns I wonder if that means much!

    Even If The Republicans Were To Raise More Money (Which I Seriously Doubt), They Still Have Bigger Debt Than Democrats To. If They Are To Be Successful In The Fall (As Most Ignorant Pollsters And Mouthpieces In The Media Claim Without Legitimate Proof). Then Republicans Would Have To Spend More To Broadcast Their Lies.

    There should be an investigation in how much of that money was secretly stolen from the taxpayer .The bill that was recently passed to give taxpayer money to the teachers unions via the government ,to use for donations by the unions to the dems for their corrupt campaign .
