The Senate class of 2008 is both extroadnarily Republican and extroadinarily poor, as measured by the cash-on-hand for incumbents in the latest round of FEC reports. Since the last deadline was 12/31/06, the reports are filed as part of the 2006 election ccyle at www.fec.gov.
The rich: Nine Senators have a cash balance of three million or more. Remarkably, only one of the nine, is a member of the class of 2008. This group is shown below the fold in order of their cash balances. Four Senators from this group won re-election in 2006, four are up for re-eelection in 2010, and one is up for re-election next year. Seven of the nine well-to-do campaigns are for Democrats including the richest of all, Hillary Clinton and three of the four with a balance over $10 million.
