An article published yesterday on Politico.com predicts that “lazarus candidacies”, like that of Mary Jo Kilroy, are “unlikely to lure voters”.
I’m not sure I totally agree with the author, but he does make a good argument:
Last year’s Democratic wave has created sky-high fundraising expectations for candidates seeking rematches and has also raised questions about why these … challengers couldn’t win under almost ideal circumstances.
He also points out that Kilroy “raised only $38,000 in the second quarter and enters July with a significant cash-on-hand disadvantage against Pryce.”
Let’s hope that with Paula Brooks dropping out of the primary, Kilroy will get her ass in gear and start raising the money she’ll need to win this time around.
Come on, Mary Jo, we’re counting on you.
