Breaking Down Sen. Norm Coleman’s Q1 Fundraising

Minnesota Monitor drops a fact bomb on the Coleman’s campaign talking points:

Coleman Q1 Fundraising: Rhetoric vs. Reality

Rhetoric: “We’re extremely excited that we have so much support from within the state.”

Reality:: In Q1 2007, Coleman raised two and half times as much from southern California as he did from Minneapolis; more from the Phoenix metro area than from St. Paul; more from New York City than from Wayzata, and more from Washington D.C. than from Minnetonka. Donors from Naples, Florida (population: 22,000) also beat out Minnesota’s capital city of St. Paul (population: 287,151).

Better take a look in the mirror before you bash Franken for taking out of state money.
