Donald Trump for President
In the opening sequence for his TV show ‘The Apprentice’, the them song screams, ‘Money, money, money, money – MON NAY!’ Which brings me to the current US midterm elections, the sheer sum of cash required to pull off a successful election makes sure no matter if you are Democrat or Republican, right wing or really right wing – you are forever in debt to the sleazy money grabbing corporate whore who donated the cash you needed to get a shot at the top job to begin with. So why not just hand it over to rich people and do away with the pretense, wouldn’t it be great to watch Donald Trump telling Donald Rumsfield, “You’re fired”!
GOP Retains Cash Edge Over Resurgent Democrats
Democrats continued to raise large amounts of campaign cash this month, but not enough to erase the Republicans' multimillion-dollar lead.
According to the parties' latest financial disclosure statements, Democratic Party committees outraised the national GOP committees during the first 18 days of October. Riding a wave of optimism about the party's chances of gaining seats in the House and the Senate in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, the Democrats' national reelection committees collected $25.9 million in the period. The Republican committees raised $18.6 million in the same period.
In addition, three dozen or more Democrats seeking seats in the House that are occupied by Republicans raised at least $1 million in the current election cycle -- the minimum that, political experts say, would enable a challenger to mount a full-fledged election bid.
