House GOP falls short on campaign cash

clipped from
House rank and file Republicans are tens of
millions of dollars short of meeting fundraising targets set by
their own campaign committee in advance of this fall's elections,
according to figures circulating among the leadership, heightening
concerns inside the party about major losses in November.
Most recent figures show that GOP lawmakers have brought $27
million into the coffers of the National Republican Congressional
Committee in the past 17 months, far short of the target of about
$58 million. Compounding the challenge, they will soon be asked to
raise another $20 million or more to help candidates in selected
battleground districts.
