Democrats Raise $3.4M in Three Weeks

The crucial work of re-building and reforming the Democratic party is going on now. We will win or loose in the mid-terms in 06 and the Whitehouse in 08 based on how well we organize NOW.

Also, on the democrats.com site, you can submit your own question directly to Chairman Dean and they are blogging the responses, a good chance to get your own voice into the conversation.

This fund raising number is a good start. And mostly due to the response of the grassroots small donors. Be sure to jump in where you can, and help with the movement...


"The Democratic National Committee raised $3.4 million in three weeks — more than double the amount raised during the same time in 2001 after President Bush was first elected, the new Democratic chairman said Monday.

Chairman Howard Dean is working to keep Democrats competitive with a national Republican Party that had a 6-1 cash advantage at the beginning of February. In January, the GOP raised $10.5 million.

Dean was elected DNC chairman Feb. 12 by party members hoping he would bring the fund-raising skills that he exhibited during his presidential campaign.

"We're just delighted the fund raising is going better than we had dared to hope," Dean said Monday in a phone interview. "We haven't put out an Internet solicitation yet."

Dean said he expects to begin soliciting money through the Internet "sooner rather than later" and said the party will depend heavily on its base of small donors.

The former Vermont governor also has been helping state parties raise money. He made an appearance at a Mississippi fund-raiser March 1 that brought in $90,000 and one in Kansas that netted $45,000."
