The first rule of elections: if you cannot raise money you cannot win & if you raise money out raise your opponent.
The second rule of elections: if you raise money, develop a targeted message and stick with it.
The third rule of elections: target and know where your votes are.

Election Day is a long way off…dynamics can change. However, the early indicators create a dark cloud over GOP candidates. Right now, the GOP has a lot of fundraising “catch up” they must do to show they are viable for election.
Money is not a guarantee for victory, but it is a good indicator that a candidate is a potential winner. Right now Democrats are demonstrating they have potential winners.
