Money totals, 30 days out
The 30 days before the election campaign finance reports are out.
$10.5M cash on hand
Kay Bailey Hutchison
$10M cash on hand
$68k cash on hand
The Dem reports are not yet available online, so I'll have to trust Matt Stiles:
$6.4M cash on hand
$1M cash on hand
A few quick thoughts:
1. Hutchison dropped in the polls while spending $3.4M against Perry's $1.9M. Ouch.
2. Shami spent $1M after spending $3M up to this point. If he is going to spend $10M as he's promises, that means we've got at least $6 million in Shami ads coming in the next month.
3. White was the slight winner for the fundraising period.
4. I see it occasionally remarked that the GOP winner is hurt by a primary, and I've already written on the topic. However, I think it's slightly more likely that Bill White sustains any damage by having to spend for a primary. I just can't ever see Perry or KBH lacking for funds. I can see Bill White lacking for funds -- possible, though not very likely -- because he has to prove he has a chance at winning, assuming he wins the primary.
The humorous bit is that you have a KBH add showing up in your google ads... ironic no?
