Showing the Money

The Hill reports that the Republican National Committee has a considerable financial advantage over its Democratic counterpart, and that Republican chairman Ken Mehlman is planning to spend it all in an effort to hold Congress. At the end of July, the RNC reported $43.6 million in cash on hand; the Democrats reported $11.3 million.

Mehlman says that no money is being held back for the 2008 Presidential election. Meanwhile, Democratic chairman Howard Dean is being widely criticized within his own party both for his methods in raising money and the manner in which he is distributing it.
