Money Power

From the AP:

In its most recent public report, the Kerry campaign said it had $2.1 million cash on hand as of Feb. 1, with debts of $7.2 million.

That's quite the fundraising gap there, right now Bush has $100 million and Kerry is actually down $5 million. Though, it is possible that Kerry could turn Bush's fundraising success against him by claiming that the only way Bush and the Republicans are able to compete is by raising huge sums of money from special interests because their agenda is so unpopular. This critique would mesh nicely with John Kerry's support of a campaign finance reform legislation (which would have provided public financing for all congressional races) that was much more ambitious than the flawed McCain-Feingold law.
