Indiana Democrats Outraise Indiana GOP In First Quarter

Although the Indiana Republican Party controls the Governor's office, along with every other statewide office and both houses of the General Assembly, Indiana Democrats still managed to outraise the Indiana Republicans by almost $200,000. The Indiana Legislative Insight reports that Democrats raised $544,013 during the 1st quarter of 2006 compared to $366,870 raised by Indiana Republicans.

Both parties spent similarly during the quarter. Republican spent $659,341 compared to the Democrats' $665,013. The Democrats also reported having cash-on-hand of $322,445, while the GOP has considerably less with $185,937.

So much for the advantage of being the in-party when it comes to fundraising. Looks like the Indiana GOP's new chairman, Murray Clark, has his work cut out for him.

It's not too hard to understand. How good can it feel to be a Republican in Indiana right now? And how motivating to be a Democrat.
