$1.9 million. Yup. $1.9 million.
Consider this - Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson raised nearly $2 million. Let's call it a tie.
There are two Democrats hoping to win West's District 22 seat - former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel and Broward County businessman Patrick Murphy.
Frankel says she raised $415,000. Murphy raised $313,000. That would be a combined $728,000 for the two Democrats compared to West's $1.9 million.
Should Frankel and Murphy just go home?
Frankel has raised a total of $1.1 million since starting her campaign. Murphy has raised $1.2 million.
West has raised $3.9 million.
Fun with math - Two Democrats total - $2.3 million. West - $3.9 million.
Fun fact - Much of the money Frankel and Murphy raised will have to be spent in the Democratic primary. West does not have, and is not like to have, a serious primary opponent.
Nope, West is just going to keep raking in the dough. A few more million for West and the DCCC may take West off their target list.
No matter how much Democrats would like to get that seat back, Frankel and Murphy are going to need a whole lot more cash to pull it off.
