BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – The Democratic National Committee will enter the midterm elections year “dead broke,” with a paltry $400,000 in party coffers, according to federal records, compared to the RNC having almost $39 million. The DNC finished 2017 with roughly $6.5 million in available cash and about $6.1 million in debt, according to recently released Federal Election Commission filings. That leaves a balance of just $422,582 to start a year that will culminate in midterm elections, in which Democrats are hoping to recapture a majority in the House. “This is outrageous!” said Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. “If the RNC has an ounce dignity and a sense of fair play, they would give half of their $39 million to the DNC. I feel this year, and this year only, all of the money from both parties should be placed in one fund, so it will be redistributed evenly. Republicans should embrace this suggestion to show all of America that we want to heal as one nation and to end all of the political fighting. To reject this idea shows that as usual, they are out for themselves, and are insensitive to the needs of the democratic party.
