[emphasis added]

That $1,668.54 in small contributions is only there because it’s a statistical impossibility to not get any small contributions in a statewide campaign. Well, mostly an impossibility.

What, no organized labor (working people!)?

That’s all of the itemized individual contributions. It’s easy enough when there aren’t that many contributions, albeit really, really large ones.

It’s just so, so grassrootsie.
