Money, Money, Money! (Final edition)
Who's got how much money left for the final stretch. As of Saturday, September 28th, the candidates had this much:
Perry $2.9 millionA huge cash advantage for Perry, even after Bell received his millions from trial lawyer John O'Quinn.
Strayhorn $0.42 million
Bell $0.08 million
Friedman $0.54 million
If you're one of those people who thinks it matters how much the candidates raised over the last month, then here are those numbers: Perry $2.6 million, Bell $2.8 million (including the $1 million dollar loan from O'Quinn and the $1 million O'Quinn donation), Strayhorn $0.58 million, Friedman $1.1 million.
In other words, Bell started burning through cash like there was no tomorrow, when in fact there's about a week of tomorrows. Strayhorn hasn't been able to raise any money, because folks realize she self-destructed her campaign during the summer. And Friedman has actually learned to conserve a little money, after that horrendous burn rate he had going on early in the campaign.
