126. Actually, O'Reilly has very little money
He destroyed any chance of raising money on DKos, as others like Lamont and Tasini did to challenge Leiberman and HRC, by arguing that Kerry needed to answer some of the SBVT comments and other incredibly asinine things. He has put about $400,000 (and he is running as the working class guy) of his own money in. A few months ago, he claimed he was not fund raising because it took time away from campaigning - but he actually raised very very little.

If you go to Kerry's johnkerryforsenatecom website you will see he has what looks like every union's endorsement. He has Kennedy and Patrick strongly backing him. His biggest danger is people not knowing there is a primary - but that may be hard to miss as Kerry has had ads out, including a great one that Gore did endorsing him and a very nice one that includes a soldier who requested Kerry give him the purple heart he earned at Fenway Park - he was joking, but Kerry made it happen.
