According to the Ryun campaign, Jim Ryun will report raising $350,000 for the Second Quarter, and will have $301,000 cash on hand.
While I haven't seen the actual report, I'll make two observations:
First, that doubles his first quarter take when you take away the $100,000 transfer from his old account. That's impressive.
Second, Ryun will have spent a whopping $305,000 this quarter. We hear Ryun has spent a lot to try and grow his fundraising base (an expense now that they're probably betting will pay off down the road). And, we know he did extensive polling and brought a full time campaign manager on board. However, this burn rate is getting up there with John McCain's. For you Ryun backers, you should hope he throttles back on the spending because it's likely Boyda will pass him this quarter in cash on hand, and with rumors of Jenkins fundraising around $200,000, it's likely she will only be $150,000 behind him.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
