Edwards Raking in the Cash

The John Edwards for President campaign is reporting that their candidate took in over $500,000 between Monday, when Edwards took second place in Iowa, and Friday, mostly from the Internet.

The campaign would not say how much cash Edwards has on hand, but rumors had been flying that Edwards was cash-strapped yet spending heavily in New Hampshire.

Matt Drudge on Friday accused the Edwards campaign of exceeding the spending cap in New Hampshire for candidates taking federal matching funds. Roger Salazar, Edwards' spokesman, said Drudge had calculated incorrectly the amount subject to the spending cap.
