RNC Left With Hoards of Cash But Little Time By Luke Rosiak-The Washington Times October 30, 2012
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.
Its likely that means a surge of GOP spending is coming. Whats 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 last-minute strategy poses opportunities and challenges.
The difference in cash on hand allows Mr. Romney to project the image of momentum by dramatically ramping up the scale of his campaign in the final days, suddenly spending far more heavily on ads, mailers and telemarketers.
This week, Republicans began making a play for Pennsylvania, dipping freely into Republican campaign funds and forcing Democrats to spend their more-limited resources to respond, and touting the new push in the Keystone State as a sign that Mr. Obama is on the wane and Mr. Romney is on the upswing.

And they’re waiting for......?
How much did they send Todd Akin ???
Todd Akin is a Conservative...
Up to now, the RNC has been relying on the effectiveness of Obama ads for...Romney! This because all their ads have been so revoltingly offensive but starting tomorrow is the election's gunlap.
Looks like Renice is just another PhonyCon Liberal....helping the DNC anyway he can
The GOP will when elections once it stops putting PhonyCon Liberals in top positions
oops...I meant “GOP will win elections once it....”. My bad
Ask the McCains.
They’ll probably send 2/3 to Obama.
They can use it to buy MRE’s and ammo after Obama wins.
I guess Michael Steele was really better than his successor, but most of us didn’t think so at the time.
You can’t atake them with you to the locker room.
Am I missing something?
I think they should save it for AFTER the victory. Use the $$ to rub it in.
What the hell are they waiting for??? Good grief!
Take to the airwaves and ask the American people for the job.
This money needs to go to congressional races.
we have several Senate races hanging by a thread...a little help could prove HUGE....
what about throwing some cash to some young new pub stars..Mia Love...and the many Iraq/Afghan vets running for office...
how about general ads about the horrible economy...the horrible billions given to green companies who then promptly went belly up, enriching their rat masters...
if a peasant like me can think of ways to support pubs, what the hell are these big buck elites doing?
someday, we'll be lead by passionate dynamic leaders instead of back room deal makers making sure they seem powerful...
again, I'm glad I never give these people a penny...
They gave them less than I gave them which is $0.00.
If they don’t support candidates why should I help them!!!
Go, Todd, Go!!!!!
Give it to me!!!!
