With the close of the 2013 end-of-year filing period, one dynamic became abundantly clear: House Democrats have the money and the momentum heading into the 2014 election year. Americans are sick and tired of this Republican Congress’ obsession with protecting their special interest backers at the expense of the middle class. Democratic fundraising strength in House races is borne out by the DCCC outraising the NRCC by a breathtaking $15 million and Democratic candidates outraising Republican candidates in the House races.
Here is a sampling of the coverage of House Democrats’ record breaking fundraising year:

Democrats are leading in the battle for the House. The latest NBC/WSJ generic Congressional ballot (which asks voters which party they want to control Congress) shows Democrats leading Republicans, 45 percent to 43 percent.
