Democrats' Edwards is raking in Texas cash
Texans eager to oust home-state incumbent George W. Bush have made Sen. John
Edwards the state's top money-raiser in the field of Democratic presidential contenders.

According to reports filed this week, Edwards, D-North Carolina, collected $1.4 million
from 1,076 Texas contributors in the first six months of this year. That total dwarfs the
amounts raised in the state by any of the other Democratic contenders.

Second, so far, is Missouri Sen. Dick Gephardt, who collected $203,000 from 179 Texas
donors. Next is former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who gathered $156,150 from 395
Texans. Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is fourth with $131,125 worth of Texas money
from 101 donors.

1. averages:
Edwards: 1,301 per donor
Gephardt: 1,134 per donor
Dean: 395 per donor
Kerry: 1,298 per donor

I just think the average donation will become relevant in the months to come...

2. Yes, the higher the better. The more the better.
And the higher the total the better. Furthermore, appeal to southerners is probably the most important thing here.

And are you implying that someone who can't raise money in the south is then going to try to turn that into a virtue? Yes, that will work. On Mars.

4. Edwards is kicking ass in Texas and California.
Sorry, but money is still the mother's milk.
