Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006



Hotakainen, cont.

And then there's the money problem. Dayton, who financed his own campaign in 2000 has said he will not do the same in 2006. As a result, he does not have the necessary donor base in place.

The Senator musters some lucidity in his prediction that Republicans and third-party groups like the Club for Growth will spend $30 million to $40 million to defeat him. DvK documented Dayton's money problems several days ago. While Hotakainen documents the modest $1.3 million Dayton raised last year, his "burn rate" was .com-like. He ended the year with just $177,000 banked.

Dayton bravely contends, "I wouldn't go into this if I didn't know that I have to raise a lot of money, and I will raise whatever amount of money I need to win". And evidence shows he will say whatever he needs to say in order to raise that money.
