Outside of California, the Democratic Party is Facing a ‘Fundraising Crisis’

The Democratic Party has a “serious fundraising crisis” as it lags far behind the Republican National Committee in cash raised and struggles to attract small-money donors, according to a former top staffer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign.

Democrats could perform well in the House in the 2018 midterm elections, but they have a major problem: “The party has a serious fundraising crisis,” Michael Whitney wrote in Politico Magazine on Thursday.

Whitney worked as Sanders’ digital fundraising manager during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

The RNC raised $75 million in the first six months of 2017, nearly twice as much as the Democratic National Committee, which pulled in $38 million during that period.
