    Is not enough to run a house race on. That's what needs to be raised in every two months to stay competitive.

    •  Well, it's a sharp improvement (0+ / 0-)

      from some of these people who have basically no money at all. I don't think it's going to give them a huge edge, let alone propel them to victory, but it might give them a chance to make some impact. And that's before you figure that money can beget money.

      Also, I chose 250 because it's a small number in a country as big as ours. I am sure you could find quite a few rich Democrats.

      Again, I don't want to give the impression that this is all that is required to win. It might make no difference at all in the end. But given that it might not cost us all that much when it comes to funding other races, I don't see the harm in trying to give people a greater level of resources to see if they can get something going.
