Interestng excerpt from John Doolittle's Wikipedia page:
In 2004, Doolittle's Democratic opponent raised only $2,300 and won only 35 percent of the vote. For that race, Doolittle took in more than $1 million in contributions. (Sacramento Bee, April 9, 2006)
What kind of politician needs more than a million dollars to beat a guy with around two grand? Where did all that money go? I'm just saying. The Wiki page has more interestng information.
John Doolittle is awful, and I'd vote against him no matter who was running. But the good news is, Charlie Brown is a cadidate I'm happy to vote for, no matter who might be running against him.
