Repubican fundraising woes

The New York Times has an article out on GOP fundraising woes in advance of the release of the second quarter fundraising numbers next Monday:
"A six-month stretch of political fund-raising will end tomorrow for New York candidates, and the results, by all accounts, will be stark: Republicans are struggling, and in some cases competing with one another for cash . . .

The current fund-raising period is a very important one: It allows candidates to prove their political strength through so-called early money, the donations that campaigns receive well before most voters begin paying attention to races around Labor Day . . .

Some of the problems facing the Republicans stem from the popularity and political strength of the Democratic candidates. Mrs. Clinton is widely viewed as all but unbeatable; Mr. Spitzer is also viewed as formidable"
We'll know more next week when the fundraising numbers get released, but if this article is right it's a boost to our work to Take Back the House.
