Grassroots Galore, But No Green for North Carolina Democrat
NC-08 Candidate Larry Kissell Ends Third Quarter With $88.94 In The Bank (No, that¹s not a typo)
Political observers can always spot a B-List congressional candidate: They run sloppy campaigns, take out-of-the-mainstream positions, and tend to say some goofy things.
Rule #88.94: Show me the moneyyyyyyyyyyyy.
The Grand Old Pedophiles continue below the fold:
Hype: "Donors Haven¹t Given Up on Kissell¹s Bid to Beat Hayes in N.C. 8" (Congressional Quarterly , 9/28/06)
Extra Hype: "Today is the last day of the last quarter before what might be the most important midterm election in recent history, and normally I'd be asking you to give the DCCC a crucial contribution before the deadline. But I am both proud and happy to ask you to give him all the support you can to match Larry Kissell's grassroots energy with the resources he needs in this final stretch. "(Letter from DCCC Chairman Rahm Emanuel, 9/29/06)
Reality: "There's good news and bad news for Democrat Larry Kissell. ... The bad news: His campaign ended the third quarter with $88.94 in the bank." Charlotte Observer , 10/7/06)
Cold, Harsh Reality: GOP incumbent Robin Hayes ended the third quarter with $1.16 million on hand, giving him over 13,000 times the financial reserves of Larry Kissell.
Cold, harsh reality NRCC: Hayes has already lost.
