New Fundraising Numbers Prove, Democrats Do Not Like To Give...to Each Other

What we've all known for some time, the GOP takes better care of its own.

"ATLANTA - Republican legislators have contributed more than $2.4 million this year to the state GOP - 14 times as much as Democratic lawmakers have given to their party.
The Republican Party has spent more than $3 million in political advertising by the end of September, most of it on campaign ads for Gov. Sonny Perdue. It will also run "get out the vote" campaigns to urge Republican voters to go to the polls Nov. 7.
"Our members are better at raising money than the former majority party, from top to bottom," Senate President Pro Tem Eric Johnson, R-Savannah, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Our people understand this is a team sport."
Johnson donated $110,000 from his campaign account to the party, but House Speaker Glenn Richardson, R-Hiram, contributed $275,000 from his campaign account and another $100,000 from his political action committee, the newspaper reported.
The top two Democrats in the General Assembly, House Minority Leader DuBose Porter of Dublin and Senate Minority Leader Robert Brown of Macon, have given their party $20,000 and $2,000 this year."
