That’s a really good fundraising quarter. And one hell of a great cash on hand at this stage of the game.

The republican candidate, Cole McNary, filed his first quarter campaign finance report on April 13, 2012:

Okay, that’s just embarrassing. Like there aren’t any “friendly” republican sugar daddies who will write a check for $100,000.00?

Maybe they’re all tapped out. Nah.
