Open Secrets has posted 2nd Q fundraising info.
http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/index.asp?cycle=2008

Interesting notes from rinsd

Richardson again did ok raising $7M and has $7M in the bank.

Romney has spent some $32M with nearly $9M in debt.

While the Democrats are certainly spending alot of money, their burn rate is less than the GOP and they are raising more funds overall.

2. They really just can't help themselves.
They never believe they'll run out because they always feel they're entitled to more.

5. If Q3 is similar to Q2
Ron Paul will move into second in terms of net cash (cash on hand - debt). McCain and Romney are going through way too much cash at this point in the race not to be in better positions.

10. Multiple Choice Mitt has to spend a lot on ads because of his low name ID
He has the lowest name ID of any of the major contenders. He has spent a lot on ads to increase his name ID. For once, Multiple Choice Mitt had only once choice when it came to spending a lot of money up front.

4. Of course Democrats are more fiscally responsible
Cactus over at Angry Bear, had a great blog post on this subject. He linked to posts like this one that show what we know. Democrats spend our money more wisely than the deferred tax and charge it now Repugs. It's obvious the current Repug slate is just carrying on their family tradition.

8. Paul almost beat Brownback, beat Tancredo, Hunter, Huckabee, and Thompson
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 05:39 PM by draft_mario_cuomo
He also has far more cash on hand than the candidates he beat, plus Brownback and almost as much as McCain. :rofl:

I am not a Paul fan but it is good to see him raise enough money to remain viable so he can drive the Republicans nuts by speaking the truth about the war during the debates.
