Gubernatorial Campaign Money Report Redux 

As promised, here are some additional thoughts on the campaign finance filings from the three candidates who filed reports for the 2010 governor's race.

After spending some time with each candidate's paperwork, I can say that Secretary of State Deb Markowitz's financial support appears to be pretty wide. She's got plenty of donors she can go back to repeatedly for money.

I think the media has lost sight, to some extent, of just how much money she's raised. To put it in perspective: Since the beginning of the year she's raised as much as Republican Gov. Jim Douglas and her Democratic rival Chittenden Senator Doug Racine — combined. She also has nearly twice as many donors as Racine, and has almost as much cash in the bank as her two main competitors. Impressive.
