DNC Outraises RNC in May

The Hotline's Jennifer Skalka has the details:
The DNC, which has lagged its Republican counterpart in fundraising so far this year, outraised the RNC in May by almost $3M.
The DNC took in $8.37M, compared with the RNC's $5.7M. The RNC has significantly more cash in the bank, however, $21.5M to the DNC's $12.1M.
With the Democrats already having consistently atched or even outraised the Republicans for the past four years despite not controlling the White House, there appears to be little reason why a Democratic National Committee, aided by a popular Democratic President, wouldn't be able to bring in more campaign cash than the Republican National Committee. So here's to hoping this is the beginning of a trend rather than an aberration.
