The Howard Dean campaign just completed a challenge pledge drive. Since Dick Cheney was going to raise 1/4-million dollars at a $2000-a-plate luncheon today, Dean's folks wanted to match that with their own online fundraiser. It started Friday with tonight at midnight ET as the cutoff.
Before the good news, here's Dean at HIS fundraising luncheon today:
...billed as his $3-a-plate turkey sandwich fundraiser. Bet he enjoyed his day a lot more than Cheney enjoyed his.
The weekend proved to be beyond their wildest dreams, raking in an astounding $507,150 at the stroke of midnight. Congratulations to the entire team for their innovation. Check out the Howard Dean Blog for more details.
