DNC low on cash after spending on grass-roots effort
Republicans have $76.6m in bank in Sept.
The Democratic National Committee started September with $7.1 million cash on hand and debts totaling $11.8 million — $8 million of it borrowed on Aug. 10 against a standing line of credit at a New York bank. The Republican National Committee, meanwhile, had $76.6 million in the bank and $9.9 million in debt from a previous campaign cycle. So, why, less than six weeks before the election, do the Democrats seem so pleased? “The priority has been winning the ground war, and right now, we feel we’re doing so,” said Brad Woodhouse, spokesman for the DNC.
