Jim Berryman's Second Quarter Fundraising
The "More Fundraising" post was getting ridiculously long with my updates on Nacht's and Berryman's filings, so I've broken the updates off into separate posts.
Here's Jim Berryman's detailed summary page:
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.
