FINAL FUNDRASING NUMBERS….In a demonstration of just how much the political momentum has changed in the past couple of months, Democrats are actually raising more money than Republicans now:
According to the reports ? among the final tallies filed before Election Day ? the three Democratic committees collectively raised $33.6 million, compared with $30 million by the Republicans. The strong showing cut the cash-on-hand advantage Republicans had a month ago to about $10 million, or nearly half.
Here’s another interesting tidbit: although Republicans have raised far more than Democrats over the entire 2005-06 campaign cycle, they aren’t in much better shape today. Why? Because the Dems have been much more efficient and businesslike in spending their money. How about them apples?
