The calculators are busy in all the campaign offices this morning. They are adding up those contributions and checking their math before filing their campaigning contribution and spending reports by 5 p.m. with the Secretary of State.
This could be telling concerning the viability of some candidates -- although it's early and there's plenty of time for a later surge.
Money matters, as a sign of support and as a tool to help get out a message. But just how much discretionary money do Vermonters have this year -- with worries about winter heating costs and driving expenses? Will that take a bite out of campaign contributions?
Any guesses as to which candidate will have raised the most? My prediction, without hesitation is Douglas.
