Holding the Democrats accountable

"New Hampshire is going to move inevitably," former Congressman Dave Nagle, former Iowa Democrat State Chairman said. "It would be important to go to New Hampshire and reach an agreement so that we move in tandem. If we don't, then we've taken a real step backward."

"The choice in this election is not between 'stay the course' and 'cut and run.' It's between 'win by adapting' and 'cut and run,'" Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman said last week.

2006 Money Politics

The Associated Press reports on the fact that Democrats are not raising as much money as Republicans in the battle for control of the House:

Republicans trying to hold onto the House raised $12.5 million in July, outpacing Democrats by a 3-to-1 margin but leaving the GOP just $1 million ahead in cash on hand.

The influx of money _ largely from political action committees _ gives Republicans a slight advantage more than two months before the November elections. Democrats hope to gain 15 seats to seize control of the House.

The NRCC has raised $70 million so far and has $34.1 million in the bank. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $4.2 million in July, taking the group's total to $81 million this cycle and $33 million cash on hand.
