Not bad.

Not good enough. He only has about $270k on hand according to your post and the FEC report.

The campaign is going to need $10 million to win this thing.

Then don't you think it's time to start promoting the money bomb on Rand's Facebook page? ;)

No, because there will be many external organizations working to get Conway in there. Think MoveOn, CodePink, etc...

CodePink? I didn't think they did that. and I would hope they are smart enough not to do it to Paul.

lol at Matt trying to motivate people to donate by scaring them with MoveOn. hahahaha!

getting money is important, but such desperate fund-raising tactics are more likely to provoke laughter than a donation.

also, why the heck is move on still talking about the civil rights act of 1964? can those assholes just move on?

I think we may need to get Rand some seriously huge money or we risk coming up short on this. The entire establishment will kick in to keep him out. From both the left and right. I think we are underestimating the hurdles ahead. This is the chance of a lifetime and a possible make or break scenario.

If Mitch allows anybody from the right to work with Conway...Mitch won't be re-elected in 2014. The worst that will happen is unenthusiastic support from the right.

At least that's my opinion.

Mitch will bring money to Rand. Don't worry about Mitch.

The floating head will pull his weight to get Rand elected:

the right will not actively work against Rand. at most they will remain passive while the left actively supports Jackass, but it's too soon to judge that.

like bamaFan, i also expect mitch to do what he can to ensure Rand's victory.

Those who've shown support vocally:
Hannity
Rush
Levin
Ingrahm
Coulter

I'd say we will get more than passive help.

i believe so too, that's why i said "at most", just to not refute the other poster too strongly, but i agree with your assessment. republicans are not in a position to not use the energy from the tea party.

How much cash on hand does Conway have? You'd have to think 0 since his election was even more thin than razor thin.

But $10 million? I mean that's all fine and dandy but you can't seriously believe the Ron Paul community can raise that much. You'd be asking a small fragment of Ron Paul's presidential donors to produce 33% of all the money Ron had.

It may well be that McConnell and his ilk will help out, but let's be realistic here, most GOP donors aren't going to just start forking over money to Rand. We need to raise at least 5 million more on our own. Period.

i wouldn't focus so much on that number. the community is going to raise as much as it can, and that's all that can be done about it. it might be enough, or it might not, although i believe it will suffice.

Small fraction? Well perhaps we should expand the number of people donating??? Ron sends out fundraising pleas to everyone who donated to him in 2007-2008. In any event, 10 million will be cheap for the seat.

Exactly. I agree, I think Rand will need at least a total of 15 million, including another 10-12 for the general election. I was simply saying that his private individual supporters need to get him at least 5 million dollars, and he needs to be getting to some fundraising dinners along with Marco Rubio and other GOP challengers... raise a lot of money from old time donors as well.

Or course if Conways really wants it, he can spend a few million of his own money....how much is he willing to spend is a good question.

According to two inside sources of mine, at least $11 million dollars is being committed to Conway from typical NWO sources:

* Israeli lobby

* global financial institutions like Goldman Sachs, CitiCorp, JP Morgan, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, etc., plus insurance companies.

* stockholders of the Fed

* George Soros

* military-industrial complex

the same group is also pushing for Tim Pawlenty to be the GOP presidential nominee in 2012.

The total amount committed will depend on future polling data. Rand is going to need all hands on deck to hold off this onslaught.

Wow. That's more than half of what Ron Paul raised in the presidential campaign. That's an enormous amount of money for a senate election.

How much does Conway have on hand after facing Mongiardo. I imagine that they both fought right up until the end.
