Bills, bills, bills. At SSP, one of our regular features was a roundup of the monthly fundraising numbers posted by the six major party committees. We were a bit slow on the draw for the April numbers, but here they are:

Committee April Receipts April Spent Cash-on-Hand CoH Change Debt
DCCC $4,012,723 $3,167,334 $5,534,665 $845,389 $7,333,333
NRCC $4,066,750 $3,500,576 $9,601,957 $566,173 $7,500,000
DSCC $2,832,447 $2,361,543 $6,004,250 $470,904 $4,354,667
NRSC $3,433,484 $3,526,414 $1,389,371 -$92,930 $1,000,000
DNC $14,034,515 $8,956,088 $14,804,916 $5,078,426 $15,353,930
RNC $6,076,652 $4,283,233 $5,004,327 $1,793,419 $18,999,456
Total Dem $20,879,685 $14,484,965 $26,343,831 $6,394,719 $27,041,931
Total GOP $13,576,886 $11,310,223 $15,995,655 $2,266,662 $27,499,456
On the whole, Democratic fundraising has been pretty solid, with a big edge in total receipts and cash-on-hand (thanks to a blockbuster month from the DNC). Of particular interest are the Senate numbers; at this point in the 2010 election cycle, the NRSC was debt-free and had $2.7 million in the bank (as opposed to their cash-minus-debt tally of $400K at the end of April), while the DSCC had $2.6 million on-hand but $4.6 million in debt. The NRCC, though, is in stronger shape than they were two years ago, when their debt dwarfed their cash-on-hand by over a million bucks. (The benefits of wielding the Speaker's gavel, most likely.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
