Raining Money on Reichert

posted by on October 22 at 13:27 PM

Via TPM, word that the National Republican Congressional Committee has laid down serious cash to defend eastside Republican Congressman Dave Reichert against the challenge from Democrat Darcy Burner:

The NRCC, which has held on to its much smaller war chest until the home stretch of the campaign, spent $4.1 million, with the biggest payment going for over $450,000 to defend Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA).

So, for comparison, what did the DCCC spend to help the Burner campaign over the same period?

I have a call in to DCCC to find out, but I’m pretty sure it’s not as much as the RNCC spent to help Reichert—the same TPM report says the DCCC’s biggest expenditure was $450,000 to help defeat a Republican in North Carolina.

In any case, I like the idea of the Republicans emptying their bank account in order to not be completely excluded from Government this year.

Man, they must be desperate if he can't raise enough funds himself ...
