A late surge of support and months of restrained spending have left the Republican National Committee flush with cash with little time to spend it — $68 million as of Oct. 17, which was nearly seven times the amount the Democratic National Committee had in the bank. Adding in the cash from other presidential campaign committees, the mismatch still was stark: $156 million for Mitt Romney and his GOP allies to $94 million for President Obama and his allies. State Republican parties also had 50 percent more cash than their Democratic counterparts, according to an analysis by The Washington Times. It’s likely that means a surge of GOP spending is coming. What’s unclear is what form it will take, and RNC officials declined to tip their hand. “I can guarantee you we will spend it all and wisely,” Reince Priebus, chairman of the RNC, told The Times.The NRSC isn't as loaded as the DSCC but that's not an issue when it comes to injecting cash into razor-close races like the Missouri senate race. Republicans before have "spread the wealth" of cash to help boost Romney's congressional allies. We're down to the final week before the election and the GOP senate nominee could use a last shot of funds to match McCaskill's ad buys. Akin is in a statistical dead heat with the Democrat incumbent despite struggling with total abandonment by the NRSC. When the NRSC left, grassroots like myself and others stepped up. Romney will be a lame duck if he wins the White House yet has no muscle to deliver on his promises, like repealing Obamacare, because the GOP abandoned a winnable race. If the party wants to talk unity, they can start with making amends and getting back into the game in my state.
Yesterday the Washington Times reported that the RNC is sitting on a war chest seven times the size of what the DNC has in the bank:
