Politically Speaking: Fundraising for Iowa Legislature

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Tomorrow we're running a recap of the campaign fundraising for
Northwest Iowa candidates for the statehouse. House Minority Leader
Christopher Rants -- unsurprisingly, given his 16-year status as a
bigwig in the Legislature -- blows the doors off all other
officeseekers. In fact, his $120,000 in 2008 might be roughly the same
amount as the other 20-some candidates combined. Seriously. Rants is
one major fundraiser, and in a release earlier this week he noted the
Republican leadership holders outraised their Democratic counterparts
by 2-to-1. Overall, for the reporting period through July 19, Rants
noted that Republican statehouse candidates had $1,177,107 in cash on
hand, compared to $1,164,602, for a narrow lead that Rants termed "a
key indicator of campaign strength."
