I understand that money does not necessarily equate to votes. But a candidate would certainly rather have more of it than less, so I am happy to report that Rudy Giuliani leads all the other GOP presidential candidates in fundraising in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. See the numbers here. [HT Grassroots PA]
I would like to take credit for this, but all the people I know who may be inclined to slip a couple ducats to the campaign are holding back. Why? Because all the people I know with money are dissatisfied with the state GOP. It’s a bit of a Catch-22 with my crowd, I guess. A candidate has to run to get money, but as soon as he or she runs there will be no money forthcoming because by running you have to stand next to the state GOP.
Interestingly, in this Commonwealth the democrat fundraisers are not holding back so much. The bad news is Hillary, Obama, and Edwards all raised more than Giuliani.
