Money and Politics II
By my estimation, the cumulative total of all state house incumbents comes to about $6.8 million currently. That is obviously a very dynamic number, but is it a lot? I note the story yesterday that Dan O. himself is holding almost $6 million in campaign cash. With another month or so of fundraising, I bet Dan O. will make it to $7 million. He certainly will be there before 2010 begins. I'm not quite sure what it means that just one gubernatorial candidate has more campaign cash than all the members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly combined.
