Well, well, well…
Despite all of their boasting, the Democrats are broke.
They’re now facing a $75 million obstacle before they can even hope to take back the Congress in 2018.
As much as Democrats point to the failures of the Republican Party, which is due to the establishment GOP RINOS, their own party is in shambles.
The Democratic Party has been rocked by numerous scandals, is completely broke, and has torn itself apart while alienating the majority of its constituency by embracing far-left ideology.
At this rate, Democrats should be looking beyond 2018, 2020, and even further down the road; because they’re not likely to win ANYTHING any time soon!

The Democratic Party has a “serious fundraising crisis” as it lags far behind the Republican National Committee in cash raised and struggles to attract small-money donors, according to a former top staffer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign.
Democrats could perform well in the House in the 2018 midterm elections, but they have a major problem: “The party has a serious fundraising crisis,” Michael Whitney wrote in Politico Magazine on Thursday.
Whitney worked as Sanders’ digital fundraising manager during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
The RNC raised $75 million in the first six months of 2017, nearly twice as much as the Democratic National Committee, which pulled in $38 million during that period.
The huge fundraising gap between the Democratic and Republican parties is not the only issue for the former, wrote Whitney, a fundraising expert-in-residence with the Centre for Australian Progress.
Another problem for Democrats is that Republicans have attracted more money in small-dollar fundraising this year.
A small-dollar donation comes from people who make contributions of $200 or less over an election cycle.
These donations “are an important measure of how much grass-roots enthusiasm a campaign or organization has,” Whitney explained. “They are the supporters who will show up to knock on doors, make phone calls, and get out the vote.”
In the first half of 2017, the RNC raised $33 million from small-dollar donations, while the DNC raised only $21 million from that same class of donors.
