The Connecticut Republican Party ended 2013 with a surplus of $14,292 in its state account, compared with $112,606 for Connecticut Democrats. The GOP had $16,675 in cash and debt of $2,383. Democrats had no debt.

Democrats outraised the GOP by 14-1 in their state account over the last three months of 2013: $107,360 to $7,498. Tom Foley, the 2010 GOP nominee, gave the party its only four-figure donation: a check for $1,000 on Oct. 24.

A full picture of the two parties’ relative finances will not be available until next week, when they must file the final monthly reports showing the balance of their more significant federal accounts.

The GOP ended November with $7,107 in cash and a debt of $7,513 in its federal account, leaving a deficit of $406. In their federal account, the Democrats were flush with $556,572 in cash and a debt of $7,828 for a surplus of $548,944.

The Republican filed their quarterly state report by the deadline of midnight Friday, but technical problems prevent it from being posted on the State Elections Enforcement Commission website until this week.

The Democrats’ report was available Saturday morning.
