In a bid to bring in more campaign cash, House Democrats sent out a plea to donors to pitch in more funds to defend President Obama from a seemingly-imminent impeachment.
In an email notice, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee solicited immediate donations citing House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against Mr. Obama.
“The White House announced yesterday that Boehner’s lawsuit could lead to the impeachment of President Obama,” the email read.
“Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is more than a political stunt. It’s a full on attack on President Obama’s agenda, his legitimacy, and the Democratic process that elected him twice.”
The DCCC asked donors to reach into their pockets to smash their 100,000 donation goal saying, “We’ve had enough of it.”
The latest public campaign finance filings show that House Democrats are already ahead of Republicans in the election cycle.
The DCCC reported donations of $10.9 million in June, roughly $5.6 million more than the RCCC.
