SPEAKING OF UNEXPECTEDLY: Republican Committee Makes Big Turnaround on Fund-Raising. “With the divisive and drawn-out Republican primary season moving toward a close, the committee reported more money in the bank at the start of last month than the Democratic National Committee, which raised about $137 million during the same period but also spent far more.” How is the DNC managing to spend so much more when there’s no primary, and no general election campaign yet? High overhead? Or are they doing something I haven’t noticed?
