The new quarterly fundraising numbers are in and it looks like the DNC is a total bust.
According to the reports, the DNC under new leader Tom Perez, only raised $4.7 million for the quarter compared to $9.6 million for the RNC. That’s a $4.9 million advantage for Republicans. Even worse for Dems, the RNC has a staggering $41.4 million on hand compared to only $8.8 million for the Dems:
Looks as if Tom Perez is a flop. All that cursing and talking of unity, but not the $$ to match pic.twitter.com/c74nqegVWo

So, cursing doesn’t get people to write checks? Who knew!
As Politico’s Marc Caputo pointed out above, this is the “worst April since 2009” for the DNC:
GOP raised $9.6 million in April 2017
Ds raised $4.7 million-worst April since 2009
GOP has $41.4 million cash on hand
Ds have $8.8 million
