I notice that on the DCCC’s list of races where their candidates have fundraising advantages:
IL-10: $66,550 COH Advantage
Dan Seals has $792,000 COH, Young Gun Bob Dold has $725,000 COH
Hey, in an open-seat race in Illinois’s 10th district, ranked in 2008 as the 13th most expensive competitive House district in the country (out of 80), our guy, who has run for this seat for the past three cycles, has $66,000 more than a first-time candidate whom everyone keeps mixing up with Bob Dole! Hooray!
They also celebrate:
NM-02: $146,000 Advantage
Representative Harry Teague has $1.17 million COH, Young Gun Steve Pearce has $1.02 million COH
The GOP’s guy is an entire 12 percent behind our incumbent! Whoo-hoo!
