RNC sues to raise unlimited cash

RNC sues to raise unlimited cash

The Republican National Committee on Friday sued the Federal Election Commission for the ability to raise unlimited cash from individual donors. The central committee, chairman Reince Priebus and Louisiana Republicans filed a joint lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia asking for permission to set up an independent account that could raise and spend potentially enormous sums of money to help federal candidates. The RNC may only accept $32,400 each year from donors, and local-level parties are capped at $10,000.

Missing yacht didn't deploy raft

The Coast Guard says a British yacht found overturned 1,000 miles out to sea never deployed its life raft. Officials said Friday night the raft was secured in its storage space on board the 40-foot Cheeki Rafiki. The vessel disappeared last week in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
