The Money Race

While there aren't really any head to head polls in the DFL Senate Race except on the right hand side of this page, the money race seems to be showing a definite trend towards Al Franken.

In numbers released by the campaigns, Ciresi was trailing Franken by about about one-sixth the total Coleman and Franken reported raising during the same period. Ciresi reported raising a little over $300,o00 for this quarter and about a million total. Franken raised over a million in the last quarter alone.

It will be interesting to see how much money really matters at this point in the race. But the constant drone of money aspect of politics is uglier this year than any other.
