Edgar: JBT needs $10 mil
Friday, Mar 31, 2006
That’s a lot of money to raise in a very short time. But all you really need is enough to burn your message in. Beyond that and it’s often just white noise.
Former Governor Jim Edgar said today that fellow Republican Judy Baar Topinka needs to raise at least ten million dollars to take on incumbent Governor Rod Blagojevich in November.
Redfield had more to say here.
Redfield estimates Topinka needs at least $8 million to finance her gubernatorial bid.
And then there’s this from CBS2:
Redfield and two other University of Illinois colleagues, including former Gov. Jim Edgar, found a lesson in that for Gov. Rod Blagojevich — even $15 million in campaign cash cannot compensate for a lack of credibility.
