Curtis at Hector Rottweiller Jr's Web Log has a handy chart of campaign contributions to the major presidential candidates by toal receipts and percentage of receipts by size of donation. I was reminded o the chart when I heard the news about Howard Dean forgoing public financing. I wonder about the dynamic at play viz-a-viz Dean's decision; is he hoping that traditional major Democratic donors will become more reluctant to help the non-Dean fray catch up in financing in the primaries, knowing that they'll be able to give more to a nominated Dean post convention, than to one of the other candidates-- sandbagging, if you will. Looks like Kerry sure could use some of that Teresa Heinz Kerry ketchup money..
