It is the job of the DNC to raise the money to spread around coupled with each candidates own war chest. The DNC has no excuse this cycle around because until two weeks ago they were “destined” for great majorities and the Presidency.
The RNC, on the other hand, has it the right way around. Cash to spread around for get-out-the-vote drives for both individual candidates and the Presidential ticket. Duh.
And yet Obama and Democrats thought a world tour campaign, and the spectacular staged campaign speech was worthy of extravagant spending. Go figure.
