Sam Brownback Q2 Results

Filed under: Election 2008,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 2:36 pm

Senator Brownback has improved his campaign fundraising over the first quarter. This continuing forward momentum is good news.

Senator Sam Brownback reports raising nearly $1.5 million for his presidential bid in the last three months.

That’s about $200,000 more than the Kansas Republican reported in the previous quarter.

And he’s wisely spending time where it can help him the most.

Brownback is spending most of this week campaigning in Iowa, where he’s counting on a strong showing in next year’s caucuses for crucial momentum.

Meanwhile RINO “maverick” McCain is floundering. His campaign is flopping around like a dying fish. Buh bye, RINO.

Why not help Sam Brownback get a jump on Q3?  Send a contribution today!

  2. Hillary is bought and paid for by corporations and deep pocket donors who she now owes many favors to.

    Sam Brownback works for Americans, not fatcats.

  3. Doesn’t matter. Without the cash a good run is nigh impossible. And, donators are limited as to how much they can toss at someone running last I checked…hold on, I think I can find it if you want…

    The point being that Hillary sadly has many supporters since she has that much. (not that I’m surprised….I just don’t like Hillary)

  4. Ha ha. Why doesn’t your non-existent “god” print up some money for you, mackeral-snappers? The party’s over, Brownbackers, you’re going to have to vote for cross-dressing Rudy “Cafeteria Catholic” Giuliani, or maybe you can write in “Jeebus.” $1.5 million in just three months. Amazing!

  6. Pity his poll numbers are down the toilet:

    06/26 – 06/27:
    Giuliani 29%
    Thompson 15%
    McCain 17%
    Romney 8%
    Gingrich 8%
    Brownback ??

    “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job!”

  7. Giuliani Picks Up $15M, Romney Gets $14M in Q2 Results
    Tuesday, July 03, 2007

    WASHINGTON — Republican Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign reported an estimated $15 million in primary election contributions in the last three months and Mitt Romney trailed closely behind with $14 million raised.

    Romney, the wealthiest candidate in the presidential field, also tapped his personal bank account for an extra $6.5 million.

    Giuliani raised more than $17 million during the quarter, the campaign said, but about $2 million was for the general election — money he can only use if he wins the GOP nomination. The campaign had an estimated $15 million cash on hand for the primary and about $3 million set aside for the general election.

    Overall, Giuliani saw an increase in his fundraising over the first quarter, when he reported nearly $16 million in contributions. About $1 million of that sum was for the general election. Romney’s fundraising fell short of his first quarter, when he raised $20.6 million and lent himself $2.35 million. All of Romney’s money is for the primary election.

    The Romney camp reported $12 million cash on hand, equal to the amount he had in the bank at the end of the first quarter. Aides said the campaign also boosted its number of donors from 32,000 in the first quarter to 80,000 for the first six months of the year.

    The figures place Giuliani and Romney solidly ahead of rival John McCain, who reported $11.2 million raised during the period but only $2 million cash on hand. McCain reported having 72,000 donors overall.

    Romney, with assets estimated at between $190 million and $250 million, has a total stake in the campaign now of $8.85 million — about $1 of every $5 in revenue.

    As the least known of the leading Republican candidates, Romney has tried to boost his name recognition with television ads worth at least $4 million during the first six months of the year. The ads have helped increase his standing in public opinion polls.

    Romney’s total revenue for the year, including his loans, is nearly $44 million. He has spent about $32 million. Giuliani has primary election revenues of nearly $32 million and has spent nearly $17 million. In the first quarter, Giuliani transferred nearly $2 million from his Senate race in 2000.

    Details of their fundraising and spending, as well as that of other presidential candidates, won’t be apparent until they file extensive finance reports with the Federal Election Commission by mid-July.

    Romney is not the only one to suffer a lag in fundraising. McCain lost ground in the second quarter as well, forcing him to restructure his campaign and consider accepting public financing for the primaries.

  8. I present to you exhibit A, the comic strip Garfield from September 11, 2001.

    Tell me that Garfield in that picture doesn’t look like Giuliani, I dare you.

    Previously, I always assumed Jim Davis was an agent of liberals, evildoers and pagans, since his comic focused on a mentally unstable layabout (a core Democrat group) and a cat (which are traditionally regarded as agents of Satan). Is it possible he was playing a secret game, waiting in the wings to bring down the cross-dresser? Is he in fact a secret Brownback-ite?

  9. Nice work! My cat actually raised more money for his presidential race in the second quarter than Brownback (but, of course, as the uncharacteristically populist repub in the posting above pointed out, democrats like Hillary Clinton unexpectedly appeal to fat cats–Which means my Frankie [who is, truly, a fat CAT] is a shoe-in!

    Pardon my joy, but have you republicans COMPLETELY lost your collective minds? Just curious.

  10. Kelly, perhaps your cat would like to help out Sam Brownback, a principled conservative Republican, get a jump start on Q3. A cat that can raise that kind of money would be a tremendous asset.

  11. Onan, Garfield in that picture doesn’t look like Giuliani.
