New House Candidate Fundraising

 It's interesting that the top new democrat candidates have out raised the top new republican candidates. It has been a long time since any group of democrats have out raised a group of republicans. If they can work together as a team it will be a good sign for the democrats in 2014/16, but team and politics are a big "if". Looking at the top fundraisers in the incoming class is a very good way to identify future leaders. It seems that the skills necessary to raise money many times lead to success in caucus politics.
