  •  Brown was a vastly superior candidate (1+ / 0-)

    and Whitman had a huge domestic help problem.  Having been in Brown's campaign, I can tell you that the money disparity was a huge problem.  Brown was saving up his money until September and getting whacked until then.

    •  Sure, but he still won (0+ / 0-)

      because he was a vastly better candidate. I would even go so far as to say that Whitman' vast ad buys only served to over-expose her and the more she advertised the worse she looked. The money disparity can help when candidates are fairly evenly matched but cannot save a poor candidate.

      •  Alas, that it didn't in this case (0+ / 0-)

        does not mean that it can't.  I'll think about examples where it has.
