Eric, that $6.7 million was money recently raised. She already had $6 million in her Senatorial campaign account. So the lady starts with over $12 million in the bank. I may be struggling with my political pants, but I can count.
There was another bit of key news, btw. If I understand correctly, she will officially announce next month. That means she will resign. And that means the governor will appoint a new United States Senator. So Hutchison’s opponent will appoint Hutchison’s (temporary) replacement. This is getting fun. To hell with my political pants. I’m ready for this thing in my political underwear.
