NBC: House Dems Smash Fundraising Records Ahead of Midterms.

The DCCC raised $20 million in online contributions since the start of the year from contributions averaging just $18, according to the group, beating the $19.7 million the committee raised during 2015, the last off-year ahead of an election year.

Let's not get excited, NBC. 2015 led to the loss in 2016. More money doesn't necessarily equate to wisdom in its spending.

I note the observation that they were relatively small donations - the basic building block of Bernie's run. He's changed the face of fundraising, and we'll see that stat quoted each time fundraising is media-worthy.
