I thought all along that Casey Cagle would get on the high side up to about $600,000.00. That he did is a tremendous thing for him.
I’ve also heard and thought all along that Ralph Reed would get between $1.6mil and $2mil. A party source suggested $2mil.
Right now I am hearing from unofficial sources that Ralph Reed will show about $1.4 million. If that is the case, it is a very good number, but it failed to meet expectations that were generated early. It will also cause more questions, such as whether there was a plateau. One more thing – I had heard that Ralph Reed had raised $700,000.00 in a day. I heard this, but I do not know it as fact. If that was the case, and we should be able to do a rough calculation based on his printed disclosure, the $1.4 million really would show that he did not get to his potential.
We’re all waiting now.
