DNC fundraising *UP* under Dean

I heard it from all over: "If Howard Dean becomes DNC chair, fundraising will go down."

The answer?

From Politics1:

The DNC reported raising $51 million in 2005 -- 20% better than the DNC's take for 2003 -- and a DNC record-high for an off-year. Not bad for a party that controls nothing in DC. DailyKos also notes that when Dean goes on fundraising trips around the nation, most of the money stays with the respective state parties (unlike in past years).

Up 20%. So there.
