Statewide Democratic incumbents are raising money for 2012. Not that the republicans are going to have an unlimited amount of money or anything.

Maybe everyone got the message.

Who are they?:

At Kirby McInerney LLP, we bring experience, intelligence, creativity, and dedication to bear in defending our clients’ interests against losses in cases of securities, consumer, antitrust, healthcare, corporate governance, and ERISA fraud.

For over 60 years, governmental entities, Taft-Hartley funds, hedge funds, and other aggrieved institutions and individuals have turned to us to ensure they receive industry-leading advice, securities monitoring, trial expertise and recoveries.

We offer our services on a contingency basis, and are paid only if successful in recovering losses in the event of a fraud….

According to OpenSecrets Kirby McInerney or individuals associated with them have given $456,080.00 to candidates between 2001 and 2010 – 97% of that to Democrats and 71% of that to state candidates.
