Straw in the wind: Dem fundraising lags
Individual Democrats running in the House and Senate appear to be doing quite well. But fundraising for the national party has "hit the skids" says Politico:
The Democratic National Committee is in the middle of its worst fundraising year in a decade.
The committee's 2013 cash pace is lagging behind even for a typical off-year, according to a POLITICO analysis of the DNC's fundraising. And it has barely made a dent in paying down election year debt nearly 10 months after President Barack Obama was reelected.
