The Big Money

I'm not really sure how interesting or meaningful comparisons between overall Republican and Democratic fundraising numbers are. Sure they say something, but the real question is whether that carries through after the primary season. Enthusiasm now is less important than enthusiasm then. The Republicans still have plenty of money to compete with each other, which is what they're doing right now.

On our side, the 3Q and 4Q numbers will be interesting, as certain candidates continue to tap out their "big donors" and are forced to increase the number of small donors to stay competitive.
