Howard Dean: Genius!
Cash on hand for the national parties, as of 2/28/06 (including the Senate, Congressional and National Committees):
These numbers only mean that the GOP has a significant dollar advantage, which doesn’t mean a message advantage.
The message advantage:
Win the war.
Confirm the judges.
Cut the taxes.
Control the spending.
Warning to the GOP: A message advantage beats a money advantage every time.
UPDATE: I have added in the Senate committees’ numbers this morning, which narrow but do not close the Democrats’ cash-on-hand gap. The $13 million dollar advantage the Dems have opened on the Senate side reflects an unwillingness of the GOP base to send money to any fund that supports Lincoln Chafee.
