The Republican National Committee raised a lot more cash than the Democratic National Committee in 2017. In fact, they doubled it. Doesn’t this conflict with the gloom and doom narrative that the media pushes every day?

RNC Raises $132.5 Million in 2017, Doubling DNC’s Total for Year
The Republican National Committee announced Wednesday that it raised a total of $132.5 million in 2017, setting a record for an off-election year.
“Our strong fundraising numbers reflect voters’ optimism and continued support as President Trump fulfills his promises to the American people,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “In his first year, President Trump delivered a historic tax cut to the middle-class, slashed regulations, and grew our economy. We look forward to electing more Republican leaders to Congress who will support President Trump’s winning agenda on behalf of the American people.”
The RNC raised $11.1 million in December, ending the year with no debt and $38.8 million cash on hand as the national party prepares for the 2018 midterm elections.
The Democratic National Committee only raised $5.2 million in December, bringing its yearly total for 2017 to $67 million, about half of the RNC’s total haul, according to Politico. The DNC ended the year with $6.5 million cash on hand and 6.2 million in debt.
How are Democrats going to win their supposed blue wave in 2018 with no money?
