If Kerry is going to accept federal funds for the post-primary season, then while it is true that he has only two more days to raise money, it is also true that he has only two more days to spend money. They can't possibly spend all the cash they have on hand now in two days. Why are they asking for more?
If Kerry is going to reject federal funds (and I hope he doesn't), then he can raise and spend money for months. Why the "two more days" pitch?
Is there something I don't understand about campaign finance rules?
