26. So did Kerry. A lot more than Nader could even imagine. $10.7M for Kerry. 111K for Nader.

In fact, there was a Republicans for Kerry organization.

"But the reality was only 700 Republican contributions (no individuals, but individual contributions) had given donations to the Nader campaign and most of the contributors were people Nader had worked with on justice issues in the past. Even among these 700 the Democrats received more money than Nader-Camejo $111,700 to $146,000. But, the Democrats continue to use the Big Lie despite the facts."

...

"Preliminary CRP results: 50,000 contributions who have given to President Bush or the Republicans have given $10,697,198 in large contributions to Kerry. This means 100 times more Republican money has been contributed to the Democrats campaign than to the Nader-Camejo campaign. That amount is five times the entire budget of the Nader Presidential campaign!"
