GOP Senators Fundraising Lagging

I was surprised to see this:
Senate Republican leaders yesterday urged GOP senators to meet ambitious individual fundraising goals to help close the fundraising disparity with their Democratic counterparts.

The Dems have $15 million more in the bank than the GOP.
Participants at yesterday’s meeting at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) said that rank-and-file senators had been asked to raise about $100,000 for the NRSC and that chairmen had been asked to raise about $150,000.

I have trouble with the idea of raising $50 for the American Heart Association's jump rope fundraiser my son is doing at school so he can get a t-shirt. I hate asking for money.
