Berryman's spending rate is very low, which probably is a sign that the campaign is still building and hasn't quite gotten started (or, perhaps, that they just know how to save money). It's a little lower than the Enquirer reported earlier, but $50,000 is still a fairly respectable showing, especially since he didn't officially declare until May 1st.

Looking at who contributed to Berryman is also very interesting. All large-dollar donations are required to include a certain amount of information, and their names are listed on the FEC website.

Two names immediately stand out: James Blanchard and Geoffrey Fieger. Blanchard, of course, was governor of Michigan from 1983 to 1991, and Fieger is a high-profile lawyer and was Democratic nominee for governor in 1998. If anyone doubted it before, this is a good sign that Berryman will have a great deal of institutional support.

Berryman also received contributions from labor, which will undoubtedly be important in the race.
