Hmmm, 39M already. Granted this was by Kaus a couple days ago (if not a week ago or so)...

1. It was about $34 mil spent by Bush for 04 election on 12/31
He has cash on hand of about 105 million, and has raised about 145.

I believe the GOP sees the dif of 40 as the cost of raising money and not a big deal

2. Infrastructure isn't cheap...
as Dean certainly learned. Bush has been quietly building a campaign infrastructure - hiring staff for local offices, etc.

I'm sure he can earn plenty more where that came from. And, no offense to Dean, but spending all of $50 million (as in Dean's case) is a little different than spending $40 million out of the $150 million Bush has raised, especially when looking at his future potential of raising more.

We better hope that this election doesn't come down primarily to money, or we're in serious trouble, regardless of the nominee.
