Michigan Republicans outraising Democrats for 2014 legislative elections

LANSING, Mich. — Republicans who control the Michigan Legislature continue to outpace Democrats in raising money for the 2014 election.

The House Republican Campaign Committee reported last week that it raised $316,000 since April. The counterpart campaign fund for House Democrats raised $160,000.

The caucus fundraising totals are separate from what lawmakers raise for their own campaigns. The House has 59 Republicans and 49 Democrats, one independent and one open seat that is heavily Democratic.

Senate Republicans raised $291,000 in the most recent reporting cycle. Senate Democrats raised just $24,000. The Senate has 26 Republicans and 12 Democrats.

Democrats fare better when looking at the overall fund balances.

The House GOP has $807,000 and House Democrats $633,000. The Senate GOP has $1 million and Senate Democrats $408,000.
