Century of the Common Iowan: Candidates' Cash on Hand
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
If you would have asked me 2 months ago which candidate would be right behind Richardson in money raised, I would have said Joe Biden. However, Chris Dodd has more than twice as much money as Biden does. I wouldn't be surprised if Biden drops out early this fall. He seems to running a campaign focusing on Iraq and with Petreus' report coming out in September, Biden could drop out then. The surprising number to me is Chris Dodd having $6.4 million on hand. He has already aired TV ads in the state. Last month he opened up campaign offices in the state and has staff on the ground finally. With the money he should be able to have a strong organization in Iowa.
