  1. Keith says:

    House District 176. Jason Shaw (R) raised just over $44,000. Debra Tann (D) raised $450. From the way things are looking down here, we don’t have a shot at keeping that seat.

  2. Ed says:

    For a sign of…something… At this point in 06, Mark had raised just shy of $7 million, and Cathy, $5.6 million. That is total money raised.

    Also why is Cathy’s governor campaign listed as active?

  3. From Insider Advantage Georgia says:

    Roy Barnes raised $1.29 million, spent almost $3 million and had cash on hand of $1,152,567.

    Thurbert Baker raised $545,202, spent $738,984 and had cash on hand of $430,862.

    David Poythress raised $220,867, spent $220,315 and had cash on hand of $306,280.

    DuBose Porter raised $66,603 during the period, spent $217,880 and had cash on hand of $101,304.

    Well, it is also impressive that Hodges outfundraised the Republicans as well! We need a candidate who can raise money and Hodges is the guy to do it. 🙂


  5. JMPrince says:

    Yes more money is almost always ‘better’ somehow. Not always ‘winning’ though. Learning how & when to avoid possible train-wrecks, always ever more invaluable though. Again where possible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTBF6gj_K9M

  6. Melb says:

    Might doesn’t make right, but it can’t hurt. I am just very proud of the campaign for working so hard and raising all that money!!!

  7. JMPrince says:

    There you go, ‘might makes right’. JMP

  8. Melb says:


    $265,000k – very impressive!!!

  9. Wow... says:

    Looks like Dubose is done.

    • Melb says:

      I don’t think so. He has spent his money very wisely and still has 100k in the bank. He has done radio, some TV, and print. I think he is doing a great job!

  10. Jules says:

    Sen. Isakson raised 7.3 million and has 4 left, yeah… our guys aren’t going to DC anytime soon.. Hey thanks Commissioner Thurmond for vacating a safe seat for us.

    I would like to suggest that you guys open up your RSS Feed so that people can read the whole article in a reader. Currently, I only see a snippet of text in my BfD feed. It’s a toss-up whether I’ll click to read more on the website or not. If it’s a post I can check out more in-depth, though, I’m more likely to click through to the website and take more time to read it. I’ll also click there to read the comments.

    Just a suggestion. You should be able to change it pretty easily if you’re interested in doing that by going to the “Reading” menu in the dashboard

  12. Melb says:
