Another good fundraising quarter for Tim Kaine, 50% higher than George Allen’s $900,000, and leaving Kaine with $700,000 more cash on hand ($2.5 million to $1.8 million) than good ol’ “Felix Macacawitz.” Assuming this trend continues for another 5 quarters, we should be in good shape. Let’s make sure it does.
