I recently got a broadcast email from Judy Feder that in the fourth quarter in 2007 she raised $240,000.
This email reminded me how I have always admired the fervor with which Lowell Feld backs Judy Feder, especially with the positive spin he manages to put on everything she does.
For example, the $240,000 she raised is reported by Lowell to be “almost $250,000.00”. Her fundraising dropped from 297K to 240K in the fourth quarter, but he focused on how she is “building a war chest” and not how she brought in over 19% less money. Despite losing by over 16% in 2006, he is confident that she wins in 2008.
Of course, he has to make her look good. But what I really find interesting is the spin he gives to Congressman’s Wolf fundraising to try to make Wolf look bad. If Feder raises more, she claims Wolf is “over confident”. If she raises less, then Wolf is “running scared”.
The Feder campaign has already made the third quarter numbers,-where they outraised Wolf-sound like it was tantamount to winning the election. I can only imagine the comments that will fly if they are again successful.
Truth be told the comments over at RK make it sound like this round of contributions has already iced the election for Feder…of course, I imagine Mr. Wolf will insist they have an election rather than just hand over his seat. Shoot, he may actually outraise her!
I wonder what kind of comments will start to fly if that happens…
We shall see!
