Kos has a post up indicating that, with $10 million cash on hand, Bayh was willing to part with $100,000 to assist the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Quoth the Kos:
I don’t care how much these guys have raised via campaign rallies and
the like. At this point, with the only thing standing between us dramatically expanding the playing field is cash, these 2008 hopefuls need to pony up.
$100K from Bayh? Ridiculous and shameful. Insulting, in fact. Dodd has close to $2 million CoH in his Senate reelection kitty. Biden has $3.3 million. Who knows how much more they have stashed away in their leadership PACs.
They can hoard that cash. That’s their prerogative. But we shouldn’t forget when they ask us to sacrifice for their efforts in 2008. Anyone unwilling to give ’till it hurts to win back Congress and move America forward this year shouldn’t get much respect when they ask us to help them out.
