Republican Dues Crackdown Pays Off
Last month House GOP leaders complained that many of their members were behind on their “dues” — the amount of campaign cash each member is expected to contribute to the party — including the chairmen of some prominent committees. The good news for Boehner & Co. is that several paid up, the bad news is that the NRCC still lags behind the DCCC by a wide margin.
