Yeah yeah, we all know how good the D's are doing.... but what about the R's?
...Republican campaigns already have acknowledged that their fund-raising will lag behind that of Clinton of New York and Obama of Illinois.
That may speak to GOP voters' uncertainty about their field at this stage -- or an overall anti-war, anti-President Bush sentiment that could be tamping down enthusiasm within the party and pushing independent voters toward Democrats.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, whose $21 million in the first quarter led the Republican money race, focused more on campaigning to boost his name recognition than fund-raising during the second quarter, his campaign said, and as a result expected to announce less.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who leads the GOP in national polls and reported about $16 million in the first quarter, had not announced a second-quarter figure yet. Neither had Arizona Sen. John McCain, one of his party's strongest Iraq war supporters, who raised less than Giuliani last quarter and whose stance for pro-immigrant legislation could cost him his early second-place position nationally.
Now, how is the Senate and House fundraising going?
Ewww, ugly for the R's. Heh.
