As RNC Outraises DNC, Is Tim Kaine Missing In Action?

So what's the deal, DNC? What the hell's going on? This is no time to rest on our laurels:

Much attention has been paid to the Democratic political juggernaut, and to the weaknesses of the GOP in general and the RNC in particular.

You wouldn't know it from their respective April fundraising numbers: The RNC outraised the DNC by $1.3 million.

The earlier rationale for the DNC's weak fundraising had been that Governor Kaine was taking care of business in Virginia, but that legislative session ended in February.

The RNC raised $5.4 million in contributions April, giving the committee $24.4 million on hand.

The DNC, in the same month, raised $4.4 million, leaving it with $9.1 million on hand.

Between the President of the United States and his massive list, you'd expect Democrats to have a real advantage in this category, but it hasn't taken hold, at least not yet.
