Jay Bullock finds a certain moral authority in the fact that Russ Feingold's decidedly middle-to-bottom of the pack fundraising comes from small donors. He writes:
But in a second, larger sense, this also speaks to the broad appeal of Feingold's message; people aren't donating to him because they are big-money folks who want to back a winner, but rather because they are your average joes who like what Russ has been saying and doing
So I'm waiting to see what Jay will make of this little gem from this morning's Journal-Sentinel:
Doyle received much larger average contributions than Green, $440 to $176, and more maximum contributions - $10,000 for individuals.
