Bush Campaign Spending

Wow. They really have been spending their money like crazy. From today’s The Note:

ABC News’ Karen Travers reports that according to the Bush-Cheney ’04’s April FEC report, the campaign has officially hit the $200 million mark for total fundraising. As of April 30, BC04 had $71.6 million in cash on hand, putting the campaign’s spending at about $128.4 million. In March, BC04 spent nearly $50 million.

Spending $50 million in one month on a campaign must smash all previous monthly records. Looking at their cash on hand, I’d be surprised if they can hit that high water mark again during this election, but you never know…
