Howard Dean Not Raising Cash Fast Enough?

Business Week, whose political leanings might not be too hard to divine, is gloating that Howard Dean has fallen far behind the money-raising of the other side. Business Week cites the Federal Election Commission as a source ... that the Democratic National Committee raised (just) $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2005, vs. the Republican National Committee's $32.3 million. Dean drew (just) 20,000 new donors, while his rivals picked up 68,200. "The bottom line: Republicans have $26.2 million in the bank vs. $7.2 million for the Dems."

And why not? The economic policies of El Presidente's regime vastly favor the well-heeled. Why wouldn't they choke Karl Rove's in-take pipes with thousand-dollar bills?
