Buchanan Rolling In Dough

This is why the failure to accurately count everyone's votes in 2006 is such a problem:

Florida frosh reps Ron Klein, a Boca Raton Democrat, and Vern Buchanan, a Sarasota Republican, placed fourth and 10th, respectively, in the top 10 list of House fundraisers compiled by CQ Politics.

Klein pulled in $1.8 million in the first three fundraising quarters; Buchanan raised $1.4 million.

Luckily, we find out more and more that ideas and hard work can defeat the big bucks. But if the voting machines cheat you out of that victory, it doesn't really matter, does it? Maybe this time around, Christine Jennings or one of the other Democratic challengers for this seat will get their votes counted.
