Third Base Politics


If you see Jennifer Brunner sticking a hat out at the corner of State and High, be nice.

This article from Politico reads just like a 3BP post, right down to knocking the SoS for not getting any help from Emily’s List:

Brunner raised only $147,000 for the third quarter, and spent $201,000 – well more than she brought in. That 136 percent burn rate leaves her campaign nearly bankrupt with only $111,000 cash-on-hand.

Brunner’s campaign announced last week that she replaced much of her finance staff as part of a campaign shakeup.

Brunner’s (lack of) money reflects the lack of support she’s received from the state party establishment. Gov. Ted Strickland endorsed her primary opponent, lieutenant governor Lee Fisher, and leading members of Congress and labor officials have followed suit.

Brunner hasn’t even won the endorsement of EMILY’s List, which helps pro-choice female Democratic candidates raise money. That’s a clear sign that the group doesn’t view her as being capable of pulling off the upset.

Bring on Lee Fisher.
