Why Do You Need $150,000 In the Final Hours Of A Campaign?

You can sign up to volunteer for Donna here.


Thanks to the 48 hour reporting rule, we know that Steny Hoyer has turned on the money spigot and cash is pouring into Al Wynn’s campaign in the race against Donna Edwards:

Foundation Coal, Verizon, Society of Independent Gasoline Markets, Reliant Energy, Allegheny Energy, American Electric Power, American Healthcare Association, BankAmerica Corporation, Cisco Systems, Coventry Health Care, Dell Inc, Dominion PAC, Eastman Kodak, Gaylord Entertainment Co PAC, General Electric PAC, Genesis Healthcare Corporation, Healthcare Distribution Management Assocation, Hogan and Hartson PAC, Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, Microsoft, Mirant, National Fisheries Institute (FISHPAC), National Association of Broadcasters, NODAK, Norfolk Southern, NORPAC, Pinnacle West Capital Corporation, US Chamber of Commerce


Air Line Pilots Association, Comcast Corp. Political Action Committe, Con-way Inc, Federal National Mortgage Association PAC, GlaxoSmithKline, National Air Traffic Controllers Association, National Apartment Association PAC, Northrop Grumman, Online Lenders Alliance, Safeway .

So let me put on my thinking cap and wonder what a huge infusion of last minute cash to a campaign could possibly be for.

Gee, I dunno. Never been down this road before.
