Dems, Obama Still Have Millions In Cash

Obama still has $30 million on hand, according to his latest Federal Election Commission filing:

And as of Nov. 24, the last day included in this report, the Obama campaign had nearly $30 million left in the bank.

Not to be outdone, Open Secrets lists Democratic Party committees with over $90 million combined cash on hand:

Democratic National Committee: $11.01 million
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: $23.35 million
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee: $8.36 million

Of course, all of this is overshadowed by the Republican National Committee, which for some reason still has over $59 million in the bank. Either they were confused about when the election was taking place, or they simply decided to pass on this effort and save their resources for a later time.
