Kucinich tops $1 million mark, has little cash left
Obviously Dennis isn't sucking up to the right lobbyists and playing the good centrist Democrat. You'll have to pardon my snarkiness this morning but I'm really soured on how this election game is played.

Kucinich tops $1 million mark, has little cash left
July 15, 2007 6:32 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio
Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has topped the one million dollar mark in fundraising for the year.

The Ohio congressman is far behind frontrunners Senators Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois. Both are on pace to raise between 90 million and 100 million dollars by the end of the year.

Campaign finance reports filed today show Kucinich raised roughly 757-thousand dollars from April through June, more than twice the amount raised during the first quarter of the year. But the campaign has spent about 900-thousand dollars, leaving him with about 213-thousand dollars.

Of the second-quarter donations, nine-thousand-891 dollars came from Ohioans, while his top donor state was California, which gave nearly 64-thousand dollars.

2. It appears that a lot of that money was used to pay 2004 debts...
He went into this cycle in debt.

3. If getting politics away from the money trap is the goal (and it should be),
then Dennis's campaign could be an exemplary one.
