 Hastings Wyman: At-risk Democrats out-raising GOPers
“For the second quarter in a row, Southern Democratic US House members elected with 55% or less of the vote in 2012 have substantially outraised the South’s Republicans who are similarly vulnerable. For the first half of 2013, the six at-risk Democrats raised an average of $726,000 and had an average of cash-on-hand of $608,000. The eleven at-risk Republican representatives raised $432,000 – almost $300,000 less, on average – and had $333,000 on hand. The numbers are based on the 2nd Quarter Federal Election Commission (FEC) reports.”
