Role reversal

Amid sinking poll numbers and a spate of retirements by veteran lawmakers, Democrats have one early advantage heading into November's congressional elections: money.

Democratic incumbents in the nation's most competitive races hold a substantial financial edge over their Republican challengers, a USA TODAY analysis of recent campaign reports shows.

It is absolutely amazing how quickly the Democrats and the Republicans have switched roles.

Remember when the Republicans were the unpopular incumbents kept alive by donations from the industries they regulated?

Of course, the Republicans lost it all once people started paying attention.
