Democrats Outspend GOP In Campaign Funds

This just goes to prove that money isn’t the end all be all. And despite the shrieking from the left that Republicans aren’t playing fair because we are outspending them, new information proves that it is actually the Democrats who have outspent the Republicans during this election campaign season.

The most recent numbers available, through Friday, showed that Democratic candidates and their allies spent $142 million on television advertising across all House races in the general election, compared with $119 million by Republican candidates and their backers. In the Senate, Republican candidates and their allies outspent Democrats, $159 million to $120 million.

The Democratic advantage on television spending in House races was something of a revelation, given all the attention that has been garnered this year by the staggering expenditures by Republican-oriented independent groups after a Supreme Court ruling in January that lifted restrictions on corporate political spending.
