The 2010 midterm elections were a dream come true for the GOP at the ballot box but a nightmare for its bank accounts. Going forward into this year's elections, party officials eagerly tout the recent headway they've made in fundraising, but just how well those gains match up to the Democrats' efforts depends on who's being asked.
