Florida Democrats' Fundraising

Sorry, I've already posted today but this is something I've got to share. I'll post later on why the Florida Democratic Party is the most needy state party in terms of reform later. But today, I'd like to showcase their 2003-2004 fundraising:

Out of all the contributions raised in Florida, only 30% was raised for Democrats. Only Mississippi and Wyoming were worse.

Florida is probably the most critical swing state and is the key to winning elections in 2008 and beyond. Only 30%! the Florida Democrats need to get their friggin' act together. Jesus.

UPDATE: In 2005, the FDP did better, but in the final quarter of 2005, Democrats raised over a million dollars (good for the FDP) but the Republicans raised 7 TIMES that amount.

Coakley Raises $351,000 Online So Far Today

So much for the notion that progressives and Democratic voters around the country aren't engaging with the Massachusetts special Senate election.

On a day when Vicki Kennedy, the widow of the late Senator Ted Kennedy (whose death prompted this special election), penned a fundraising appeal on behalf of Martha Coakley, the Democratic nominee in the race, more than $351,000 in online contributions have streamed into Coakley's campaign. While this figure is less than the $1.3 million raised in a single day earlier this week by Scott Brown, the GOP nominee in the race, the day is still young and money appears to be continuing to pour in.
