The Form 6 forty-eight hour campaign contribution reports filed by federal candidates with the Federal Election Commission always make for interesting reading. Sometimes there are fascinating distinctions between the donor bases for the candidates.

That Theodore Roosevel, IV:?

Theodore Roosevelt IV Opts Out of G.O.P. Race for Senate

By DAVID M. HALBFINGER

Published: November 24, 2009

Few people knew that he was thinking about it in the first place, but Theodore Roosevelt IV, a wealthy investment banker with serious credentials on environmental issues and in foreign policy – and of course, that famous name – now says he will not seek the Republican nomination for the Senate from New York in 2010.

Mr. Roosevelt, the great-grandson of the 26th president, worked at Lehman Brothers and is now a managing director at Barclays Capital. He said he began studying a run against Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a Democrat, over the summer and was encouraged by talks with Republicans including former Gov. George E. Pataki, Representative Cynthia M. Lummis of Wyoming and Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the chairman of the party’s senatorial campaign committee.

Calling himself a “liberal Republican,” Mr. Roosevelt, 66, a former chairman of the League of Conservation Voters who lives in Brooklyn Heights, spoke harshly on Tuesday about the party’s conservative national leadership and lamented that the state Republican organization was a “series of fiefdoms,” though he said he was confident that he could have won the nomination…

Uh, yep.
