Here's yet another reason why the nutroots all-out assault on Joe Lieberman was a truly awful bit of campaign strategy. The incredible waste of resources.
Lamont contributed $3,751,378 in the reporting period. Contributions from individuals totaled $1,091,766.
Last Friday, Lieberman's campaign reported it had about $4.7 million on hand heading into the last month of the campaign.
Lieberman's report showed he raised $6.1 million and spent $4.9 million between July 20 and Sept. 30.
Lieberman is running as an independent after losing the August Democratic primary. His campaign did not release a detailed breakdown of the donations, but he received nearly $5.5 million from individual donors and just over $632,000 from political action committees, according to the report.
The Lamont campaign said the candidate has contributed $6,252,878 himself to date. His campaign also said Lamont has received $2,758,174 from some 30,000 individuals through Sept. 30.
All of that money raised and spent to defend a seat that was safely in Democratic party hands. All that money that could have gone to other candidates. All the time Lieberman could not spend helping other candidates. <sarcasm> Absolutely brilliant. </sarcasm>
