    As far as the Rove list of targeted Democratic districts is concerned, I'm presuming that there's a heavy degree of overlap with the DCCC's Frontline program, geared to the party's most endangered incumbents.  Roll Call has a story on their fundraising prowess in the first quarter, but it's behind their subscription firewall.  However, Political Wire quotes the article as saying that the program's 29 members

    "raised an average of $291,000 in the first three months of 2007. That reflects more than a $100,000 jump from the average the Frontline members raised in the first quarter of 2005.

    "There also are almost three times as many Members in the program this cycle, due to the Democratic victories in last year’s midterm elections that netted the party 30 seats and control of the House."

    Leaders in this group were Ron Klein (FL-22) and Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-20), each of whom pulled in over $600K in the quarter.  Both of them, however, seem to have gotten much of that money from individuals who are already maxed out for the 2007-08 cycle, having contributed $2300 for the primary and an equal amount for the general.
