WASHINGTON — The Democratic National Committee raised more than $16 million in September, a party official says, its best fundraising month in a congressional election cycle that has proved to be challenging for Democrats in every way but financially.

Party spokesman Brad Woodhouse said 80 percent of the money came from low-dollar donors online and through the mail, as opposed to big contributions at fundraising events.

"We've found that our supporters are now focused on the election, are responding to the president's message laying out the choice and understand the stakes," Woodhouse said. The elections are four weeks away.

President Barack Obama headlined four DNC fundraisers during the month, helping make it the highest midterm election haul since 2002 when Congress imposed new limits on party fundraising.

This election cycle, the DNC has consistently raised more money than its counterpart, the Republican National Committee, establishing an advantage that has infuriated Republican strategists and top party fundraisers. Many in the GOP blame RNC chairman Michael Steele for the anemic finances.

I learned today that Goldman Sachs was the major DNC contributor for the 2008 election cycle, and again is one of the top 20 contributors this cycle. So THAT'S where our tax dollars went! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Seems odd that someone who complains about big business, and evil corporate CEOs, and how they are running the country, is celebrating how much money was given to politicians last month.

Financial firms, which for most of this year have been shifting political contributions to Republicans, say they’ll push Congress to restrain federal agencies that are filling in the details of the law, writing rules in areas including capital standards and a ban on proprietary trading. Banks would prefer to have Republicans overseeing the regulators, lobbyists said.

A Republican takeover would mean the banking industry “will have an active voice on the Hill, trying to influence the direction of regulatory agencies,” said Travis Plunkett, legislative director at the Consumer Federation of America, noting that only three House Republicans voted for Dodd-Frank. “The oversight process, grilling agency officials, that’s a big deal that shouldn’t be underestimated.”
