‘What’s going on with Fox?’ Trump says you ‘have to watch the competition’ but complains his favorite network is ‘putting more Democrats on than Republicans’

  • President Donald Trump doesn’t like Fox News hosting 2020 Democratic candidate town halls on the network
  • He says ‘something strange is going on’ at the network with it 
  • ‘Somebody is going to have to explain the whole Fox deal to me,’ Trump lamented
  • South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg brought in 1.1 million viewers for his Fox News’s town hall Sunday in Claremont, New Hampshire
  • The numbers with Fox News was almost double the amount of viewers that watched Buttigieg’s March town hall with CNN  
  • The millennial mayor, at 37-years-old, was the third Democrat to participate in a Fox News town hall after Sens. Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will appear in one next month
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she declined the invitation because she didn’t want to contribute to the network’s viewership from the Democratic demographic

President Donald Trump thinks ‘something strange is going on’ at Fox News Channel with the recent influx of Democrat town halls.

At a campaign rally in Montoursville, Pennsylvania Monday night Trump said that he was assessing the Democratic competition, but admitted he didn’t like Fox News giving the 2020 candidates more air time.

There are 24 candidates already running in the 2020 Democratic primaries, and three have appeared on the network so far to participate in town hall events.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg was the latest candidate to appear on Fx News on Sunday night. Trump chastised the network for allowing the candidate to bash some of its prime time hosts as a guest on the network.

‘What’s going on with Fox, by the way? What’s going on there?’ Trump asked the audience that was half inside and half outside of the Williamsport Regional Airport. ‘They’re putting more Democrats on than you have Republicans. Something strange is going at Fox, folks – something very strange.’

‘Did you see this guy last night?’ Trump said, making reference to Buttigieg’s town hall. ‘I did want to watch, you always have to watch the competition, if you call it that. And he was knocking the hell out of Fox, and Fox just put him there. Somebody is going to have to explain the whole Fox deal to me.’

During the town hall, Buttigieg hit Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his remarks about immigrants making American ‘dirty,’ and host Laura Ingraham for comparing children in detention centers to being at summer camp.

‘There is a reason why anyone has to swallow hard and think twice about participating in this media ecosystem,’ Buttigieg said on his reason for appearing in an event with the network – especially in response to other Democrats that refuse to accept Fox’s invitations.

‘Even though some of those hosts are not there in good faith, I think a lot of people tune into this network who do it in good faith,’ he said.

The South Ben mayor drew 1.1 million viewers to his Fox News town hall Sunday night.

According to early Nielsen Media Research data, the Fox News event with the 2020 Democratic candidate earned almost double the amount of viewers than CNN‘s town hall with him on March 10, which averaged 545,000 viewers.

The event on ‘Fox News Sunday’ was moderated by Fox News host Chris Wallace and was held in Claremont, New Hampshire, which is along the Vermont border. 

Buttigieg’s town hall aired in the 7 p.m. time slot, and his viewership was a 22 per cent increased compared to the 2019 average of regular programming at the time. The event also delivered 172,000 viewers in the key demographic of 25-54-year-olds.

He also received a standing ovation from the crowd after his closing statement. 

The Indiana mayor was the third Democratic candidate of this election cycle to appear on Fox News for a town hall event. Of the three, he drew the least amount of viewers.

Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders had the most-watched town hall of the year when he was the first Democrat to appear in a Fox News town hall. He garnered 2.6 millions viewers from the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania event.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar also agreed to a town hall earlier this month, which took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – and attracted 1.6 million viewers.

A fourth candidate, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, has already agreed to do a Fox News town hall on June 2 from Iowa.

The first two events were co-moderated by Fox News hosts Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier, and the second two slated Wallace as the moderator.

Buttigieg, who is openly gay and has been married to his husband Chasten since June 2018, was a former long-shot candidate with almost no name recognition as a small-town mayor from Indiana.

The millennial mayor climbed the ranks swiftly, and many times ranks from third to fifth place among the two dozen Democratic candidates– some, like former Vice President Joe Biden, have much more notoriety than Buttigieg.

Buttigieg is the youngest Democratic candidate running in 2020 at 37-years-old.

Mostly Biden comes in first place in the polls among registered Democratic voters, and in a recent Fox News poll, he was the only candidate who beat Trump in a hypothetical matchup outside the margin of error among all likely voters.

Fox News has to rely on Democratic candidate voluntarily appearing on the network since they were banned from holding Democratic debates.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said the network would not be allowed to host any of the Democratic debates in the 2020 election cycle because he claims it would not be able to hold a ‘fair’ event.

‘I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,’ Perez said in a statement in March. ‘That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News.’

Perez, however, said that recent reporting regarding President Donald Trump and his administration’s relationship with the network has led him to reconsidering pairing with Fox News for the debates.

‘[T]he network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates,’ Perez said at the time. ‘Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.’

In April, Perez said the DNC was not reconsidering its decision.

Progressive Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren said she declined the invitation for a town hall because she doesn't want to contribute to their viewership with Democratic primary voters that usually wouldn't watch the network

Fox News has to rely on Democratic candidates voluntarily appearing on the network because Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez barred Fox from hosting any of the party’s 2020 debates. He said it couldn’t hold a ‘fair’ event

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, a progressive candidate that has won some more traction recently, said she would not participate in a town hall with the network.

‘Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I am turning them down,’ Warren said in a Twitter thread May 14.

‘Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,’ Warren said when citing the reason for declining the network’s invitation.

Warren said she did not want to contribute to growing Fox’s audience numbers, an argument that seems to hold some validity as Democratic candidates continue to draw millions of viewers.

‘Here’s one place we can fight back,’ Warren continued. ‘I won’t ask millions of Democratic primary voters to tune into an outlet that profits from racism and hate in order to see our candidates—especially when Fox will make even more money adding our valuable audience to their ratings numbers.’

Gillibrand defended her decision to accept the Fox News invitation.

‘My belief is that presidents of the United States [need] to represent everyone, and I am going to ask every voter for their vote, regardless of where they live — whether they’re in a red state or a purple state or a blue state,’ Gillibrand said on MSNBC last week.

‘And I believe you need to meet voters where they are, and a lot of America happens to watch that network so I would like to do a town hall so I can speak to all Americans about their values, their views, their priorities, and where I stand and what my vision for this country is and my experience to actually realize that vision,’ Gillibrand continued.

May 2, 2019

By David Shepardson

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s Google unit told a U.S. House panel it spends hundreds of millions of dollars annually on content review and said it manually reviewed more than 1 million suspected “terrorist videos” on YouTube in the first three months of 2019.

Google disclosed in a April 24 letter made public on Thursday that the manual review found 90,000 videos violated its terrorism policy.

In March, following the live-streaming on social media of a mass shooting in New Zealand, the chair of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security urged the top executives of Google, Facebook Inc, Twitter Inc and Microsoft Corp do a better job of removing violent political content.

After a briefing in March, Representative Max Rose, who chairs a subcommittee on intelligence and counter-terrorism, asked the four companies in an April 10 letter to disclose their budgets for counter-terrorism programs and number of people working solely on counter-terrorism programs.

Rose said in a statement Facebook has not responded and the other firms did not fully or directly answer his questions.

Twitter said in an April 24 to Rose that “putting a dollar amount on our broader efforts is a complex request.”

Twitter said a “substantial portion” of its 4,100-person global workforce are involved in reviewing content.

Alphabet’s first quarter costs rose about the same as revenue, up 16.5 percent from last year to $29.7 billion.

Expenses have surged faster than revenue for much of the past two years, concerning some investors amid increased scrutiny on the company’s privacy practices and YouTube. Google said in its letter it has more than 10,000 people working across the company on content review.

Tim Cook addresses Tulane University graduates at Commencement 2019

On Saturday, Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was recently acclaimed as an even better leader than the legendary Steve Jobs, carved out a morning from his very busy schedule to deliver a commencement speech for the 2019 graduates of Tulane University in New Orleans.

Back in February, when Tulane confirmed Cook as its commencement speaker for this year, the university’s president Mike Fitts touted that the Apple CEO, who enjoys the reputation as one of the world’s most workaholic bosses, “represents the kind of success we hope all of our graduates can attain.”

Subscribe to Observer’s Business Newsletter

But as soon as Cook stepped up to the podium on Saturday, his message to Tulane’s graduates became the very opposite of what was expected of him—instead of presenting himself as a role model for the young graduates in the audience, Cook encouraged them to challenge older generations’ successes and to find their own.

“In some important ways, my generation has failed you,” Cook said. “We spent too much time debating, too focused on the fight and not enough on progress.”

“You don’t need to look far to find an example of that failure,” he continued, pointing to an example that no one understands better than those living in the natural disaster-dogged New Orleans: climate change.

“This problem doesn’t get easier based on who wins an election. It’s about who has one life’s lottery and has the luxury of ignoring this issue, and who stands to lose everything. The costal communities, including some right here in Louisiana, that are already making plans to leave behind the places they’ve called home for generations and head for higher ground… When we talk about climate change, I challenge you to look for those who have the most to lose and find the real, true empathy that comes from something shared. When you do that, the political noise dies down and you can feel your feet planted on solid ground.”

Cook’s most important message actually went beyond climate change. Expanding the discussion to how young people can filter out the “political noise” and find their real goals, he encouraged them to fight against what today’s tech giants—including Apple—want them to see and regain their own perspective.

“If you find yourself spending more time fighting than getting to work, stop and ask yourself, ‘Who benefits from all the chaos?’” Cook said. “There are some who would like to believe that the only way you can be strong is by bulldozing those who disagree with you… We forget sometimes that our pre-exiting beliefs have their own force of gravity. Today, certain algorithms pull toward you things that you already know, believe or like. And they push away everything else. Push back! It shouldn’t be this way.”

Below is Cook’s full speech from Tulane University on Saturday.

The Senate on Tuesday unanimously voted to pass a bill that reverses a tax increase in the 2017 GOP tax law involving military survivor benefits that go to children, The Hill reports.

The tax law included a so-called “kiddie tax” on unearned income by children, intended to keep wealthy parents from avoiding tax on their wealth by passing it onto their children. Prior to the law, children’s unearned income was taxed at the same rate as their parents’, but now it’s taxed at the same rate that trusts are taxed. 

This also had the effect of raising taxes on benefits that go to the children of deceased members of the military. The bill passed on Tuesday changes this, so that military survivor benefits are treated as earned income when it comes to the “kiddie tax.”

“This bipartisan legislation is one step closer to helping those who lost a father or mother serving in the military to protect our freedom,” said Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., who sponsored the bill.

Virginia Democratic Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner added that they’re “glad” the matter has been dealt with by the Senate, and that hopefully the House “will take action swiftly to ensure that Gold Star families aren’t hit with a tax hike.”

Trump gives Barr green light to declassify 2016 campaign surveillance documents; Travel ban over abortion law

Friday, May 24, 2019

Trump gives Barr the green light to unseal documents on the 2016 surveillance of the Trump campaign
President Trump on Thursday night issued a memo giving Attorney General William Barr the ... See More authority to declassify any documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. Trump also ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr. U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, blasted the move as an attempt to "weaponize law enforcement and classified information." Trump has long claimed his campaign was the victim of "spying," though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation.

Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign. But despite the backlash, the attorney general appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed.

Alleged Trump 'cover-up': A second generation of the 'Russia witch hunt'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's claim of a presidential "cover-up" is the second generation of the Russia collusion "witch hunt,"according to a White House spokesman. Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley made the claim Thursday on "The Story with Martha MacCallum," describing the continuing Democrat push for further investigations as "the Russia collusion hoax witch hunt 2.0." Gidley's comments came asTrump and Pelosi and other Democrats continued to snipe at each other over Wednesday's scuttled meeting on infrastructure. White House officials insist Trump was calm when he cut short the meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Pelosi and Schumer insist Trump was agitated and threw the equivalent of a presidential temper tantrum when he abruptly ended the session. The president has demanded Democrats end their "phony investigations" before he negotiates with them on issues like infrastructure. Meanwhile, Wells Fargo, TD Bank Thursday turned over Trump's financial records to Democrats in the House Financial Services Committee led by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

Theresa May says she'll quit as Conservative leader June 7

British Prime Minister Theresa May announced Friday that she will resign -- ending her months-long struggle to keep her job despite seething anger from her own Conservative Party over her handling of Brexit.

But it is now clear to me that it is in the best interests of the country for a new prime minister to lead that effort," she said outside 10 Downing Street.

LA lawmakers approve Alabama travel ban over new abortion law
Los Angeles County's Board of Supervisors voted this week to enact a one-year ban on official travel to Alabama over that state’s controversial abortion law, which all but outlaws the procedure. Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, who co-authored the motion with Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, called the law an "attack not only confined to the residents of those states but an act of aggression upon all of us." The motion prohibits officials conducting business on behalf of the county from traveling to Alabama except for emergency response, training or assistance or “legally required matters where the failure to authorize such travel would seriously harm the County’s interests," Solis said in a statement.

Pete Hegseth op-ed: Let's stop second-guessing our war heroes
In a feature on FoxNews.com, "Fox & Friends" weekend co-host and Iraq war veteran Pete Hegsethexplains why he wants critics to stop questioning the tactics U.S. troops employ on the battlefield. He writes the following: "We send men to fight on our behalf, and too often second-guess the manner in which they fight. Count me out on the Monday-morning quarterbacking — I’m with the American warfighter, all the way. ... I’m not talking about massacres or sheer recklessness. None of us ever contemplated the killing of women and children for sport. We didn’t shoot innocent civilians for fun. There may be a few deranged combat troops, and they will get their due. Yet, too often, when warfighters come home they are second-guessed. Prosecuted by lawyers who never left their air-conditioned offices or politicians with ulterior motives."

$44M #MeToo settlement for Weinstein
Harvey Weinstein, the former movie mogul accused of sex crimes by multiple women, hasreached a tentative $44 million settlement to resolve lawsuits filed against him by his accusers, creditors and board members of his former film studio, according to multiple reports Thursday night. Under the proposed settlement, which has not been finalized, $30 million would be paid to the plaintiffs -- including former employees of Weinstein Co. -- and $14 million would go to pay legal fees, with the funds coming from insurance policies, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Pelosi-Trump war paralyzes government; 'American Taliban' to be released from prison

Government paralyzed: Trump calls for end to 'phony investigations' after Pelosi accuses him of engaging in a 'cover-up'
The very public rift between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday illustrated of how much the Russia ... See More collusion investigation -- and what Trump supporters would call Democrats' obsession with ousting him from the Oval Office -- have paralyzedthe government. The meeting between Trump and Democratic leaders Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was cut short and any plans to rebuild America's infrastructure were put on hold after Pelosi accused of the president of engaging in a "cover-up." Trump, in a Rose Garden statement, said that Democrats must end their "phony investigations” before he'll negotiate with them on issues like infrastructure.

So, right now, both sides remain at a standstill. Trump and the White House insist Democrats can't accept the findings of no collusion in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report and want "do-overs" with numerous congressional investigations. Democrats show no signs of easing up on their investigations and insist Trump is obstructing justice by instructing witnesses to defy subpoenas and be uncooperative.

'Catastrophic' tornado damage reported in Missouri capital
Jefferson City, the capital city of Missouri, has taken a direct hit from a tornado and suffered possibly “catastrophic” damage, according to reports. According to the National Weather Service, a “confirmed large and destructive tornado” was observed over Jefferson City at 11:43 p.m., moving northeast at 40 mph. The twister appeared to have traveled through the center part of town, the Jefferson City News-Tribune reported. "We are currently identifying the location of damages and searching for injured residents," Lt. David Williams of the city's police department said in a statement to the News-Tribune. "The primary need at this time is for those not affected to stay clear of the impacted areas so that Emergency personnel can assist those in need."

'American Taliban' to be released from prison Thursday
John Walker Lindh, the Islamic militant who became known as the infamous "American Taliban," is set to be released from a U.S. federal prison Thursday despite lawmakers' concerns. Lindh, who has been behind bars in Terre Haute, Ind., is set to be discharged several years before he would complete the 20-year prison sentence he received for joiningand supporting the Taliban. The former Islamist fighter and enemy combatant was arrested in 2001, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks and the start of the war in Afghanistan, along with a group of Taliban fighters who were captured by U.S. forces.

In a letter last week to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, lawmakers expressed concerns about the "security and safety implications" of freeing an unrepentant terrorist who officials say continues to "openly call for extremist violence." They also sought details on how the agency is working to prevent prisoners such as Lindh from committing additional crimes after their release and asked which other "terrorist offenders" are next in line to be freed.

Avenatti's legal troubles continue to mount
Federal prosecutors in New York on Wednesday charged embattled attorney Michael Avenatti with defrauding adult-film star Stormy Daniels, the client who propelled Avenatti into the national spotlight. Avenatti, 48, faces one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. He faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted of those charges. Daniels (aka Stephanie Clifford) is not named in the indictment, but a federal law enforcement official confirmed to Fox News that she is the client prosecutors claimed Avenatti defrauded.

Avenatti rocketed to fame representing Daniels when she sued to be released from a non-disclosure agreement involving an alleged tryst with President Trump in 2006. He parlayed his notoriety into numerous cable news appearances and even was floated as a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020.

Former staffer for Michelle Obama evades subpoena in Smollett case
Tina Tchen, the former chief of staff to first lady Michelle Obama, declined Wednesday to be served with a subpoena by a retired Illinois judge seeking the appointment of a special prosecutor in the Jussie Smollett case, according to the process server. In an email to former Illinois appellate judge Sheila O'Brien obtained by Fox News, the process server wrote that a security guard at the Chicago law firm where Tchen is a partner "called up to her and spoke with her and she said that she in [sic] never going to accept service and to not allow me up to their Law firm." The subpoena would have required Tchen to appear at a May 31 hearing on O'Brien's request for a special prosecutor and provide "any and all documents, notes, phone records, texts, tape recordings made or received at any time, concerning your conversations with [Cook CountyState's Attorney] Kim Foxx in re: Jussie Smollett."

Trump: Dem Leaders ‘Tearing the United States Apart’

President Donald Trump followed up his fiery Rose Garden speech Wednesday with a series of tweets that took aim at Democrats on Capitol Hill and their continued investigations of him and his administration.

Shortly after his hastily scheduled press conference, Trump continued to assail his political enemies on Twitter.

"So sad that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will never be able to see or understand the great promise of our Country. They can continue the Witch Hunt which has already cost $40M and been a tremendous waste of time and energy for everyone in America, or get back to work…." Trump wrote.

"....But they really want a do-over! You can't investigate and legislate simultaneously - it just doesn't work that way. You can't go down two tracks at the same time. Let Chuck, Nancy, Jerry, Adam and all of the rest finish playing their games…." he wrote in a follow-up.

"....In the meantime, my Administration is achieving things that have never been done before, including unleashing perhaps the Greatest Economy in our Country's history…." Trump added.

He closed by writing, "....Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People – and Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you truly mean it!"

Pelosi, the speaker of the House, said she was praying for Trump after he "took a pass" on working with Democrats for infrastructure legislation.

NY Legislators OK Congressional Access to Trump Tax Returns

New York state lawmakers have passed legislation that would allow President Donald Trump's state tax returns to be released to Democrats in Congress.

The legislation now goes to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo after final passage Wednesday in the Democrat-controlled Senate and Assembly.

The bills don't target Trump by name but would allow the leaders of three congressional committees to access any New York returns filed by elected officials and top appointed officials.

A bill that originally passed the Senate would have allowed Congress to request any state taxpayer's returns. The measure was later narrowed, prompting the Senate to vote again Wednesday.

New York Republicans have denounced the legislation as a politically motivated attack on privacy.

The proposed changes to state law were made amid a battle going on in Washington over Trump's federal returns.

Trump vows no more legislation while under investigation…

President Donald Trump abruptly walked out of a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., at the White House on Wednesday, telling reporters moments later that he would not negotiate on legislation with Democrats while he was still under investigation by several committees.

Wednesday's meeting was supposed to be the second official sit-down between the president and Democratic congressional leadership specifically focused on infrastructure.

"I walked into the room and I told Sen. Schumer and Speaker Pelosi, 'I want to do infrastructure' ... but we can't do it under these circumstances," Trump said at a last-minute Rose Garden event.

Trump's anger appears to have been sparked by comments Pelosi made earlier in the day when she said, "We believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up" by blocking White House aides from giving testimony and responding to document requests from ongoing congressional investigations.

"I don't do cover-ups," Trump insisted Wednesday.

According to a White House official who spoke to CNBC on condition of anonymity, the meeting in the Cabinet room lasted only about seven minutes. Trump effectively said to the visiting Democrats that he wanted to do infrastructure, "'but you're focused on investigating. When you're done we can talk. Meeting over,'" Trump said, and then he left, the official said.

"I knew the president was not serious about infrastructure and would find a way out," Pelosi said to her Democratic colleagues after Trump's exit, according to a Democratic aide who spoke to NBC News.

It appeared as though Trump's abrupt walkout had been planned in advance, given that the White House had prepared a sign to adorn the presidential lectern, and handouts that were given to reporters following the Rose Garden statement.

Speaking to journalists at the Capitol shortly afterward, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said there had been "high drama in the Cabinet room. We were all invited, Democratic leaders, for the follow-up meeting on infrastructure, everyone showed up, sat in their chairs, the president walked in the room and announced he was not going to go forward with the meeting, he was cancelling it."

Trump "objected to the continued investigation of obstruction of justice, he said he cooperated and gave his side of the story, as we've heard before," Durbin said, calling the outcome of the meeting, "a setback to our country's progress."

Following the president's remarks, Pelosi and Schumer held an impromptu event on Capitol Hill where Schumer said Trump's actions at the meeting "would make your jaw drop."

In late April, a similarly billed meeting proved to be an unexpected success, with both Trump and Democrats saying the two sides agreed that an infrastructure package would need to contain about $2 trillion in funding and investments.

Since then, however, there had been little additional clarity as to what the next steps forward might be, or where this money would come from.

"Let them finish up" their investigations, Trump said at the end of his remarks in the Rose Garden, "and we'll be all set."

Later in the day, Trump reiterated his position in a series of tweets, claiming, "You can't investigate and legislate simultaneously - it just doesn't work that way."

White House officials declined to say precisely which legislative efforts would be halted as long as Democrats continued their investigations, and which ones might proceed regardless of Trump's anger at the myriad probes underway into his administration.

DNC Lags Far Behind RNC in Donations

The Democratic National Committee raised only $6.6 million in April, lagging well behind the Republican National Committee, which had $15.9 million in donations during the month, The Daily Caller reported Wednesday.

The numbers were even worse for the Democrats related to debt and cash on hand, with the DNC $6.2 million in debt and only with $7.6 million on hand, according to Red State.

The RNC, meanwhile, has no debt and $34.7 million cash on hand.

The situation is so dire for the DNC that while Republicans can expand their reach by offering all their candidates data for free, Democrats are charging $175,000 merely for access.

An RNC spokesman explained the significance, saying "Chairwoman [Ronna] McDaniel's fundraising allows the RNC to build the necessary infrastructure and permanent data-driven ground game to benefit Republicans up and down the ballot."

For the Democrats, the RNC spokesman said, "A cash-strapped DNC is in no position to offer their eventual nominee significant resources after they conclude their costly primary battle."
