DNC Raises Twice as Much as RNC

The DNC significantly outraised the RNC in April, "powered in part by millions of dollars from successful fund-raisers that featured President Obama," the New York Times reports.

Democrats raised $12.4 million in April, more than double the $6.1 million that Republicans took in over the same month.

"The figures are an early indication of the power of the presidency to raise money. Mr. Obama has rapidly accelerated his money-raising schedule in recent months, holding multiple fund-raisers each week, sometimes dropping by two or three in a single night."
