McMahon raising funds and possibly eye brows
A Washington source told the Advance last night that McMahon had already raised around $400,000 for the campaign.
If this is true McMahon is one of the most prolific Congressional fundraisers considering he has been in the race for only a month at this point. Fossella struggled to bring in $200,000 per quarter (three months) as an incumbent, so use that as your benchmark. I am going to say that he might have quite a war chest already but $400,000 seems incredibly high. One the other hand if this is remotely close to being accurate it has to scare any Republicans looking at jumping into the race now, which may be the real reason to release a slightly inflated number. Interesting.
