Dreier Donors Drying Up

Since the Dems took control of the House, San Dimas Representative David Dreier has seen his fundraising drop dramatically, according to Lisa Freidman in the Daily News.

Dreier, who was unseated as chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee in the November Democratic victory, raised less than $27,000 over the past two quarters.

That's an almost unprecedented low for the prolific fundraiser, who even in nonelection years has been known to raise at least $100,000 in any three-month span and often more than $200,000.

The man himself isn't worried though.

At the same time, Dreier and others noted he continues to have nearly $2 million in his coffers, putting him among the 10 most financially secure lawmakers in the House.

"I don't think I have a pressing need," added Dreier, saying sometimes lawmakers need to take a break from seeking campaign contributions.

"Give people a rest," he said, "including myself."

We carried the story, albeit inside. The reason is because maybe he's right. I think it would be bigger news if it continues this way for a few more cycles.
