A different kind of candidate

Filed under: Polling Data,Sam Brownback — relee @ 12:45 pm

So says the Washington Post and for once they’re right:

Sen. Sam Brownback (Kans.):
We’ve been saying for months that Brownback is running a different kind of campaign than any of the top-tier candidates. Brownback has and will continue to rely on an army of volunteers to provide the manpower for his campaign. He also is focusing heavily on the Iowa caucuses (and the Ames straw poll this August) as his one chance to make the leap. With those factors in place, Brownback’s $1.9 million raised — a total that includes a $575,000 transfer from his Senate committee — is enough to keep him in the conversation. If he can continue to raised $2 million or so a quarter, Brownback will have between $5-8 million to spend on the early days of the nomination fight. That should be enough for his longshot candidacy.

  1. Add to this the fact that Sam doesn’t have to pay a bunch of spinmeisters and other liars to somehow paint him as a conservative like RINO Rudy and Flipper Romney do. Brownback’s been a consistent conservative. All he needs to do is get his name out. He doesn’t have to spend millions on lies and deception to fool primary voters.

  2. Brownback raised enough money to keep his powder dry, and that’s all he needs right now. When the McCain/Romney/Giuliani campaigns have imploded, that money’s going straight to the coffers of the only serious conservative contender on the field today- Brownback.

  3. Senator Sam Brownback is indeed a different kind of candidate the more I hear from him the more impressed I am by him. I will be sending in my second $15.00 contribution next week he has earned it as far as I am concerned. He will do well fundrasing in the next quarter to since he has a base of money to work with for fundraisers.

  4. Well done, Jason. As more Americans realize, as you have, that Brownback is the best hope for America’s future, his campaign will continue to take off.

  5. Keep up the great work Jason. You speak for thousands and thousands of other conservatives who recognize one of their own. You’re on the crest of the coming wave.
