It Don’t Mean A Thing If You Ain’t Got Ka-Ching

The Democrat-Dispatch from FEC reports:

“[Bobby Schilling] raised $171,000 in the third quarter and finished the quarter with $163,000 available to spend…[Cheri Bustos] raised $305,000 in the same quarter and has collected $767,000 since being elected, with $612,000 on hand…”

  1. Schilling is in deep trouble. I don’t think he is raising money like he did in the past. He isn’t as popular as he once was. If he wins the primary he won’t beat Bustos. Eric Reyes has a better chance of beating Bustos.

  2. I was surprised how poorly Schilling has done in fundraising—I know there is still some time, but I had expected better.

    I agree with you that he is a weakened candidate from what he was in ’10 and I’m waiting to see how he reacts when someone asks him to denounce the Tea Party like Schock and Kinzinger have done. They can probably win without Tea Party muscle and money—Bobby, not so much.

  3. The Tea party was crucial to Bobby in ’10. It surprises me that he denounced them after his election. Schilling will need to “kiss a**” in order to gain popularity. That won’t happen though.

  4. Paula, Schilling hasn’t “denounced” the Tea Party—yet. What he does is get all weaselly when asked if he is Tea Party. He says he believes in what the Tea Party stands for—small government, low taxes, etc. but he isn’t Tea Party. He doesn’t want to be branded Tea Party because it polls bad among liberals—or something.

    Before a cock crows—and all that.
