NYT Writer on Dem Fundraising: 'They Can't Get it Right'

The Democrats have been trying to play catch up in fundraising for the past few years since losing the 2016 general election. And failing. The Republican National Committee brought in over $27 million in September, according to the Federal Elections Commission. That's almost four times as much as the DNC tallied, which was just under $7 million. Not to mention, President Trump has twice as much cash on hand as President Obama did at this point during his own re-election campaign.

New York Times writer Mara Gay took note of the party's financial struggles during an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell this week, likening Democrats to "long suffering sports fans."

"When you talk to Democrats sometimes it's like you're talking to a long suffering sports fan of a team that just can't quite get it right," Gay said.

Mitchell noted that that analogy "hurts."

Politico made the same observation. One of their recent reports, entitled, "Democrats shudder at Trump's money machine," quotes Democratic operatives who wonder how the party will be able to compete with the president and his resources.

Democrats are growing increasingly alarmed by the spending chasm between the two sides — and its implications for the general election.

“The resources he has will be put to work anywhere and everywhere that he feels like he can scare up electoral votes, and Democrats will never catch up. It’s just too much money,” said Chris Lippincott, a Texas-based Democratic strategist who ran a super PAC opposing Sen. Ted Cruz last year. “That’s real trouble … I’m not here to curse the dark, but it’s dark.” (Politico)
