Lets just look at the numbers, with minimal comments from me.
The raw numbers in AD 77
Anderson (Nygren) – 141k COH & 21k spent in period.
Beecham (Coronado) – 147k COH & 20k spent in period.
Beyer (Justin) – 85k COH & 10k spent in period. That’s pretty low COH for LaSuer’s candidate.
Dale (Wainio) – 82k COH & 38k spent in period. This campaign is spending a lot of money real early. My count shows 12k in finance and 9k in radio in this disclosure alone.
The raw numbers in AD 74
Garrick (Coronado) – 351k COH & 35k spent in period.
Packard (No Consultant) – No on-line filing. My understanding is that he has less than 35k COH.
Waldron (Gilliard) – 195k COH & 21k spent in period. Come on guys… right before every disclosure Waldron puts 100k in, and right after she takes it out. That’s nice cause the campaign can then claim to have raised 100k extra every time and at least on paper remain in the game for folks who dont pay that much attention. But in my book that means her campaign is actually at around 95k COH.
