We need to start calling dems in office. We keep getting lambasted to donate here and donate there. Well, its time to hit up our leaders. I can't believe this hasn't been done yet. But check out the fund raising numbers below.
DNC borrowed 10 million
DCCC borrowed 10 million
This must be a pretty big election huh?
Well.........I agree. I have donated more than I should have...but look at some of these balances....Maybe they should pony up for the majority!!!
While I know they have kicked in. It is imperative that nothing is left on the table. I don't want 1 race underfunded this weekend. Please call and e-mail these and ask to pitch in. I call it reverse fund raising.
These amounts do not even take into account their PACs.
Sen. Kerry-MA- as of 10/15 5.3 million (Pretty safe seat I think)
Sen. Kennedy-MA-as of 9/30 5.4 million (pretty safe seat I think)
Sen. Rockefeller-WV as 10/15 1.5 million
Sen. Pryor-AR as of 10/15 2.5 million (running unopposed)
Sen. Feingold-WI as of 9/30 2.4 million
Sen. Boxer-CA as of 9/30 3.6 million
Sen. Schumer-NY as of 9/20 10.0 million
Sen. Bayh-IN as of 9/30 10.7 million (if we lose IN, I blame him!!)
Sen. Reid-NV as of 9/30 2.7 million
That is $44.1 million dollars. If they kicked in 25% that would be over 11 million dollars. Would that bring Martin of GA to the US Senate? Would that bring Noriega of TX to the US Senate? Would that bring Lunsford to the US Senate? Would that give a boost to Allen in Maine?
We should be contacting them. This is more than my hundred bucks...but I have called all of them. Tomorrow night we will look at the representatives. They should step up.
Others of interest: Sen. Feinstein 2.4 million
Sen. Baucus-MT 4.4 million
Sen. Harkin-IA 3.0 million
Sen. Reed-RI 3.3 million
Sen. Durbin-IL 6.4 million no opponent
