Kerry campaign tops Dean, Edwards in fundraising
Edited on Fri Jan-23-04 04:19 PM by Feanorcurufinwe
Well there were a lot of contradictory numbers being bandied about yesterday on fundraising figures, mostly because they were all using different timeframes. But this AP story actually gives a side-by-side comparison:

"I think what Dean is probably witnessing right now is the shift. What fueled his campaign, especially a lot of his contributions, was the party was pretty united against the war in Iraq," Davis said. "Now they want to beat Bush."

<snip>

Despite his third-place Iowa showing, by Friday afternoon, Dean had raised at least $750,000 of the $1 million he asked donors to give before New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary Tuesday.

Kerry and Edwards have also seen hundreds of thousands of dollars come in this week.

Like Dean, Iowa winner Kerry is trying to raise $1 million this week. The campaign had collected at least $860,000 over the Internet by Friday afternoon. Edwards raised at least $560,000 online since Monday night.

2. Kerry getting his Yale buddies to pony up?
His old frat brothers? What's the typical donation to Kerry, the max $2000?

4. I donate equally one month to Kucinich and next to Kerry....
and did so all last year. I guess that makes me a Yalie?

Guess those fire fighters and veterans who support Kerry are all Yalies, too?

3. I think the important point isn't how much you have raised
It is how much you have left after NH.
