Dean Breaks DNC Fundraising Records
From Parker over at MyDD:
A quick look at actual FEC reports shows that Dean has raised more money in an off year than any DNC Chair in history. First Quarter of 2005 - $16.7 million Q1/2004 - $28.7 million Q1/2003 - $8.7 million Q1/2002 - $11.8 And Dean is on pace to break the midyear fundraising of $23.7 in the first six months of 2001.Of course, the Republicans are out-fundraising him, but that's a trend that existed long before Dean became RNC Chair. In the 2004 election cycle, corporations donated ten times as much money to the GOP as they did to the Democrats. Corporate CEOs have been told never to donate to Democrats, or even to hire Democrats as lobbyists, or face Rove's wrath.
