McCain/RNC have $94 Mil
0

TPM election central is reporting that the McCain Campaign combined with RNC have $94 Million cash on hand. Key graphs:

"On a conference call just now with reporters, Rick Davis said that the campaign currently has over $26 million on hand, plus the RNC's over $67 million. They expect to have a total of $210 million between September and Election Day alone -- and a total budget of over $400 million for the pre-convention and general-election cycle.

For comparison, the current McCain/RNC total is about twice the combined Obama/DNC cash figure through the end of May, though the June numbers from after Obama sewed up the nomination have yet to be released."

The RNC has been massively out raising the DNC, which means that without all of Obama's supporters giving to the DNC as well as his campaign, the Republicans will effectively neutralize his financial advantage. Unlike candidates the RNC/DNC have no caps on contributions meaning wide support can easily be matched by a few big wigs.

Also, right now any donation to Barack Obama will be matched by another supporter so if you're going to give, this is a great time.
