Watch out, big guys ....

...here comes the little guy:


Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo, a staunch opponent of illegal immigration, received a big financial boost for his presidential campaign from his home state, but also took in tens of thousands of dollars from Texas and California, according to federal election records...

Seventy-five percent of Tancredo's contributions were under $200, indicating a strong grassroots effort. The campaign is not legally required to itemize those donors but said the average contribution was $61...

Tancredo's fundraising pales in comparison with the top-tier candidates, many of whom have amassed more than $20 million. But he did outraise seven other contenders from both parties, including fellow Republican Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor. Tancredo is also financially running neck and neck with Republican Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas.


Go Tom!

By the way, speaking of Huckabee, here is Jeremy Lott's excellent article from a couple weeks ago about the real office Huckabee is running for. Check it out.

Well, we could use a David right about now to knock off all the monetary 'Goliaths' running around the campaign scene.

Lets see if he can break into the first tier. Thompson is sucking up all the extra oxygen. Wrote a good article over at National Review regarding the nut at VT. Rudy is busy self imploding.

Who knows.
