Democrats early money haul stuns GOP

A historic number of well-funded candidates have flooded Republican House districts ahead of 2018.

Democratic candidates are reporting historic early fundraising totals, alarming GOP strategists and raising the prospect that 2018 could feature the most expansive House battlefield in years.

Animated by opposition to President Donald Trump and the Republican congressional majorities, at least 162 Democratic candidates in 82 GOP-held districts have raised over $100,000 so far this year, according to a POLITICO analysis of the latest FEC data. Thatís about four times as many candidates as House Democrats had at this point before the 2016 or 2014 elections, and itís more than twice as many as Republicans had running at this point eight years ago, on the eve of capturing the House in the 2010 wave election.
