2010 Fundraising Roundup
** Republican incumbents running for re-election (Mike Chaney, Stacey Pickering and Delbert Hosemann) look good financially. Especially Hosemann who has more than $500,000 in the bank. Of course, it also helps when you don’t have a general election opponent.

** My surprises for the down ballot open races were Max Phillips (running for commissioner of agriculture and commerce) and Lucien Smith (running for state treasurer). Phillips blew his two primary opponents out of the water, and these are two strong opponents at that (a sitting state Senator and Representative). Smith raised more than $250,000 and his bank is double his nearest competitor.
