Parties' fundraising in 2001-02

The New York Timesreports

Republicans opened up the biggest fund-raising lead in history in the election cycle ending last year, even though Democrats did far better than ever before in a nonpresidential year.
Federal Election Commission statistics show that all national Republican committees raised $441.6 million, as against $217.3 million for the Democrats, in contributions subject to limits the so-called hard money that is the only kind now permitted to national parties under the McCain-Feingold law that took effect after Election Day 2002.
