First, Halter has outraised Lincoln this fundraising period to the tune of $777,119.94 to Lincoln’s $552,289.91. Now there’s still a cash on hand advantage favoring Lincoln, but you see how that’s helped her so far. (Oh, and a lot of that is earmarked for the general election if I’m not mistaken.) So far in this race, Halter has spent $835,629 to Lincoln’s $1.7 million. How’s that for proof that money doesn’t always win elections?
You know what’s even better? Boozman’s fundraising!
That is pathetic fundraising for a guy who’s been in Washington for so long and is supposed to be walking to a win this November. Again, money isn’t everything, but you have to stay competitive. And if trends hold, this is just one more bit of reassurance that Halter can be competitive in November.
But let’s not get complacent. Come on, donate to Bill Halter.
