Cash: The GOP Trump Card

Anyone emotionally invested in a Democratic Congressional takeover might want to consider making a financial investment too. (All those opposed, click here.) That's because the Washington Post is reporting that Republican incumbents in the most competitive races hold a 2-to-1 cash-on-hand advantage over their Democratic challengers, with an average disparity of nearly half a million bucks. As Michael Crowley points out over at TNR, those dollars may well erode gaudy Democratic poll numbers, and may mean the home stretch is a lot tighter than it looks today, three weeks out.
