RNC outraises DNC by $1.5m in August

The RNC brought in $6.8 million that month, to the DNC's $4.3 million. The RNC has raised $14 million more than the DNC this year overall.

And the DNC, aside from suffering month after month of disappointment on the fundraising front, is in deep debt.

It has more than five times as much debt as it does cash on hand — $18.2 million in the red to $3.6 million cash in the bank.

The RNC, in stark contrast, has $12.5 million in the bank and no debt.
