Small donor spin

Small donor spin

A Mitt Romney campaign announcement declaring its latest fundraising figures raised a few eyebrows on our team -- not because of the amount of money that was raised, but rather because of how the campaign characterized its contributors. The press release highlighted that "84% Of All Donations Received Through The End Of March Were $250 Or Less," which seems to suggest a groundswell of grassroots support for the former governor. While the percentage the campaign cites is correct, it doesn't illustrate the role small donors play in the campaign's overall fundraising. read more

NOW Today: Live from Washington

Alex is in DC today with an all-star lineup, and among the discussion points: the Violence Against Women Act, an 18-year-old law that Republicans are suddenly opposed to. Democrats want to ensure the LGBT community is extended the protections of the law, which sponsors programs to respond to domestic violence and sexual abuse.

President Obama: #Don'tDoubleMyRate

04/25/12 05:59PM

A new political fight is raging in Washington, and it’s over how to keep loans more affordable for college students. In the last 24-hours, President Obama has visited three college campuses, where he’s courted the youth vote and urged Republicans not to allow federal student loan rates to double. If an agreement can’t be reached by July 1st, rates will jump to 6.8% from 3.4%. In Iowa today, the President told students to Tweet “Don’t Double My Rate” to Republican lawmakers. But in Congress, Republicans and Democrats don't appear any closer to an agreement. read more
