The Iowa Republican: Campaign 2010: The money race

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

In his latest financial disclosure this past January, Governor Chet
Culver raised just over $1 million for his reelection campaign. The
year before, Culver raised a similar amount, and he currently has just
under $1.5 million in his campaign bank account. Those in the
traditional media have made a big deal out of the Governor's
fundraising ability. This past Sunday, Charlotte Eby began her article
about potential Republican candidates for governor with the following
sentence, "Challenging an incumbent governor who's led Iowa through a
historic natural disaster and who is a prolific campaign fundraiser
might seem like a daunting task." Prolific fundraiser? Really? An
incumbent Governor should easily raise $1 million per year, and that
is also the number that Republican challengers should aim for by the
end of this year.
