WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans trying to hold onto the House raised $12.5 million in July, outpacing Democrats by a 3-to-1 margin but leaving the GOP just $1 million ahead in cash on hand.

The influx of money -- largely from political action committees -- gives Republicans a slight advantage more than two months before the November elections. Democrats hope to gain 15 seats to seize control of the House.

The NRCC has raised $70 million so far and has $34.1 million in the bank. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $4.2 million in July, taking the group's total to $81 million this cycle and $33 million cash on hand....

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has raised $65.9 million this cycle and has $20.6 million on hand....

1. Wonder how much laundered tax dollars that represents.

Obviously taking down Abramoff didn't impact their supply of stolen public money and money defrauded from investors. I don't even need to look at fundrace to know that among R's there will be lots of families with each member all contributing the maximum.

$$$$ will follow the hopeful winners. Corps do not like NOT backing a winner....
