Only $500.00 for PR? That would explain a lot.

$1,250.00 for polling? This can’t be for a poll, can it? In a state senate district? If that’s the cost for a complete poll that’s one of the cheapest I’ve ever seen. Maybe it’s a preliminary expenditure.

You’d think with a rough parity among all of the primary candidates when it comes to campaign cash that someone would spend their time and energy actually doing the campaign thing instead of blowing their gasket at a little out of the way progressive political blog. You’d think.
