Liberals Now Rolling in the Dough and a Relaxed Ignatieff Looking Better All the Time

According to the Globe: Liberals trumpet ‘unbelievable’ campaign fundraising gains
Michael Ignatieff’s Liberals have raised $1-million in the first four days of the federal election campaign – as much as they did in the first three weeks of the 2008 campaign under St├ęphane Dion, according to the party president.

Alfred Apps suggests a combination of daily policy announcements as well as new television ads – which are playing in heavy rotation in Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba – are contributing to the increase. “It’s wild,” he said. “Unbelievable.”
I think it's completely believable. Harper went out the gate an angry man and seems to be just getting angrier as the campaign continues.

I think we may have a race.

  1. Harper’s neocon Reforma Tories lie about their fundraising bottom lines

    A review of the fundraising of the federal parties indicates that, although the Conservatives do well at fundraising, they primarily do better with smaller donations from individuals.

    Further, this broad-based approach to fundraising is higher cost.

    Their big dollar numbers, while significant, is not as colossal as some observers think once costs are factored in. This situation is reversed for the Liberals.
