I found it interesting that Chet Culver chose to report his fundraising numbers after Branstad let it be known that he had raised a million and a half bucks in the last couple months of 2009. Culver having $2.6 million in the bank is an impressive number, but the real story here is how much the guy has spent.
At the end of 2008, Culver had $1.49 million cash on hand. If he raised $2.145 million this year and will report that he has $2.59 million cash on hand, that means the dude spent over a million bucks in 2009.
Money well spent? Hardly.
Culver’s re-elect numbers are dismal. Bob Vander Plaats beat him in a head-to-head by 8 points, and Terry Branstad beats him by 20 points. Even Chris Rants and unknown Christian Fong were not in that bad of shape in a head-to-head matchup with Culver.
In addition to seeing what the hell he spent a million dollars on, I want to see if he is still renting his Park Place Condo in Des Moines.
