We couldn't help but chuckle over this one, which reminded us of a Star Wars quote:
"I sense a disturbance in the Force."
When reading this in a report from The Hill, we couldn't help but want to cue the Darth Vader theme music:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is concerned about a “disturbing surge in Republican fundraising,” according to an e-mail she wrote to Democratic supporters Tuesday.
In a missive to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) e-mail list, Pelosi thanked donors for helping the committee reach their fundraising goal, but warned that Republicans were jumping out ahead.
“[J]ust as soon as word came of the contribution that put us over the top, we received news of a disturbing surge in Republican fundraising,” Pelosi wrote. “House Republicans are now claiming to have had their strongest fundraising in five years.”
The speaker made a plea for donations to help “close the gap.”
