Sheldon Adelson, the biggest Republican donor, wants key GOP fundraising groups to shape up after this year's midterm wipeout in the House or risk losing his support for the 2020 election cycle, CNBC has learned.

"Adelson and his team are disgruntled about the Republican committees' is their lack of a response to the Democratic grassroots fundraising platform, ActBlue.

ActBlue is an online technology fundraising organization that helps Democrats running for office, liberal interest groups and fundraising committees raise money through the internet. The online portal, which is focused on small donations, brought in over $1 billion this year, about a third of its total haul since it was founded in 2004, records show."

By change, Addison means the GOP needs to adopt its usual MO to increase funding-lying cheating and stealing.

Adelson should check the odds more often.
There's a greater chance that the Pineapple Kush Dream Party will strike it rich than dirty politics will.

Is Mr Adelson concerned about ActBlue's success, or about the reduction of his own influence in elections due to ActBlue's success?

@#3 ... Man wants a return on his investment! ...

That concept was quite aptly demonstrated with the purchase of a tax reduction by wealthy Republican donors.

GOP lawmaker: Donors are pushing me to get tax reform done

...Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) had been describing the flurry of lobbying from special interests seeking to protect favored tax provisions when a reporter asked if donors are happy with the tax-reform proposal.

"My donors are basically saying, ‘Get it done or don't ever call me again,' " Collins replied....

Donate a million dollars, get five million dollars in return via tax cuts.

But the Republicans tout the meager tax cuts that the middle class got...

Adelson's beef should be with Trump and the last two years of deceit, fraud, cruelty and buffoonery. No amount of GOP fundraisers could be expected to overcome what the simmering mass of voters saw every day of Trump's administration.

Adelson laid down with dogs and now he's complaining about getting fleas?????

Cry me a river.

You're too polite.

That POS laid with dogs and got doggy herpes.

Why else do you think he's such a bloated, water retaining sack of dog -----?

Metaphors aside, neither Trump nor Adelson can see themselves as others see them. The first, as a grifter with no moral compass and the second, one who gets furious when his money fails to subvert democracy.

They're both narcissist without an ounce of introspect. I'll be polite again and say Pfffft to both of them.

As I watch this drama unfold I can't help but compare Trump's bad tempered buffoonery to Obama's professional dignity and grace under pressure.

I agree?

Not sure if you thought I was Gonoles or something and needed that class in introductory to Repub scumbaggery 101.

No, JPW, I know that you don't need any remedial education about Trump. But there are others who read these posts who need all the re-education we can give. In fact, I still have faith that there are a couple curmudgeons on this site that are borderline. We never know when something, someday, will strike a chord.

This is obviously fake news. Dems are too busy trying to get the rest of the country to believe that all Dems are poor, humble people who don't have money because the big, bad Republicans have taken it all. Otherwise, it would mean Dems are lying just to get votes, and they would never do that.
