Republican Governors Association Has Biggest Fundraising Quarter Ever
Talking Points Memo ^ | 07/01/2010 | Eric Kleefeld

The Republican Governors Association has announced a very strong fundraising quarter, taking in $19 million from April through June -- their largest fundraising quarter ever -- with $40 million in cash on hand for this year's statehouse races.

From the RGA's press release: "The RGA's previous largest fundraising quarter occurred in the 4th quarter of 2009, when it raised $11.9 million. This quarter RGA raised $18.9 million. The RGA's former mid-year fundraising record was $15.1 million. RGA is at $28 million this year - almost double the earlier record. In 2006, the last comparable election year, the RGA raised $28 million for the entire year." (Emphasis in the original.)

Haley Barbour is a money-raising machine. While the RNC coffers run dry, the RGA is flush with cash in record amounts.

I’m really pulling for Kasich in Ohio and Martinez in New Mexico.

I personally think it was the tremendous job they did with the remembernovember.com ads - the first AND the response to the libs’ tirade. A good set of qijones and spine that are long-time needed.
