In the days before Hillary Clinton launched an unprecedented big-money fundraising vehicle with state parties last summer, she vowed “to rebuild our party from the ground up,” proclaiming “when our state parties are strong, we win. That’s what will happen."
But less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by that effort has stayed in the state parties’ coffers.The more, and the larger, the groups that agree to participate in the fund-raising, the more the group is allowed to accept as a maximum donation. Hillary's group has enlisted state and local committees to join in, raising the maximum she can ask for (and get). Unfortunately for those state and local groups, they're not seeing much of the donated funds.
