For a few weeks now John Kasich has been pushing his “2,010 for 2010” fundraising plan via email, online ads and through his website. Hell, his (second) wife even twittered about it last week.


The goal of this campaign is to get 2,010 people to donate $20.10 each to Kasich’s gubernatorial campaign in the month of November.

I keep trying to think of some clever fundraising strategy into which this plan would fit, but I keep coming back to the same conclusion: John must be really desperate for money if he’s asking people for 20 bucks.

For John’s sake, I hope he has some other ideas too. Because raising $40K in a month is a pretty weak-ass fundraising goal.
