Fundraising Group Led By GOP All-Stars Falling Short Of Goals
American Crossroads, formed by some of the GOP's biggest names with the aim of helping the party win the 2010 midterms, launched a few months ago with an ambitious $52 million fundraising goal. So how much did the group pull in in May? A whopping $200.

According to Politico, the May numbers bring the total raised since March to a little over $1.25 million. After boasting in April that donors had already pledged $30 million to the cause, the money appears to be slow in coming to the 527 group led by Karl Rove, Republican consultant Ed Gillespie and former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan.

"We spent our first six weeks building a structure that our donors want to see in place, and now we are at the stage where the checks will begin catching up with increased commitments," American Crossroads president Steven Law told Politico, adding that he expected the group to have a solid June.

Very Happy
Republican Fundraising Falling Behind 2007 Numbers
Quote :
After taking the House last November in a wave of conservative opposition to President Obama, Republicans now appear to be struggling to match the financial muscle of Democrats heading into the contentious 2012 elections.

The six GOP presidential candidates who have announced results raised a combined $35.6 million through June 30, including about $18 million by presumed front-runner Mitt Romney. In 2007, Republican candidates had raised more than $118 million by the same stage of the race, according to a new analysis from the Center for Responsive Politics.

The sluggish pace poses a serious complication in Republican efforts to unseat Obama, and suggests that GOP donors simply might be less enthusiastic than their Democratic rivals. The Obama campaign, which has not disclosed numbers, is expected to report raising at least $60 million — and perhaps as much as $80 million — in conjunction with the national party.
