Below is a spreadsheet showing select information from campaign finance disclosure reports as of the 3/31/14 report. Does Jason Carter’s good 11 days show momentum as he claims? Who are the front-runners in the State School Superintendent race? Why haven’t down ballot Democrats raised much money? Discuss the implications of these numbers in the comment section.

Disclaimer: If a candidate’s report is not shown, it does not necessarily mean that candidate is late in filing the report. A technical glitch could explain the lack of a report.

Bertis Downs donating to a Republican campaign (Richard Woods for State School Superintendent) is mighty curious. Woods has some explaining to do.

Why has the GAGOP been hemorrhaging money before we’ve even had the primaries?

Thanks for posting these campaign disclosure reports, Buzz.

One thing that immediately stands out on these reports is that the Democratic Party of Georgia had over $520,000 in cash on hand as of March 31, 2014.

That is notable because at about this time last year, the reports were prevalent that the Democratic Party of Georgia only had not even $15,000 in cash on hand and that the party was having extreme financial problems.

With an increase of over $500,000 in cash on hand between last year and this year, it appears that the Democratic Party of Georgia has been fairly active and vastly-improved in its fundraising efforts.

I am very concerned about the GOP spending as much money as it has before buy any real paid media. Most of the expenditures has been in personnel and consulting not direct appeals for votes from what I understand. That might change, but it remains to be seen.
