The Democratic National Committee reported its worst April of fundraising since 2009, according to Federal Election Commission records released Monday. The DNC reported taking in $4.7 million last month. While this is an off-year for fundraising, the DNC hauled $8.5 million last year, and nearly $5 million in 2015. Between 2010 and 2014, the Democrats received anywhere from $6.3 million to $14.4 million per year. However, the drop in donations coincides with an effort by DNC Chair Tom Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to rally support for the party. The two traveled the country on a “unity tour.” The Republican National Committee’s April numbers more than doubled its counterpart. The RNC reported raising $9.6 million in April and holding $41 million cash on hand. The DNC said it has $8.8 million on hand.
This is why the Dems are trying desperately to find SOMETHING that they can go after Trump over. So, you have idiots like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) saying the word “impeachment” every time she finds herself in front of a camera. Of course, she is incapable of articulating under what grounds an article of impeachment might be warranted. But, hey.. It sounds good, and is red meat for the donor class. So, she and other Dems, continue to just carelessly though out that red herring in the hopes of whipping up their base, and maybe getting those donations to pour in. That said, given how down donations are WAY down, perhaps the base isn’t buying the DNC’s sales pitches..
