California Fundraising Numbers http://www2.ocregister.com/ocrweb/ocr/article.do?id=34949§ion=NEWS&subsection=FOCUS_REGION_STATE&year=2003&month=4&day=16
Kerry $1.5 million
Edwards $1.1 million
It's interesting to note the gap between Dean and Lieberman, which might be another sign that Joe carries a bit too much baggage from campaign 2000. And I think it's fantastic that Dean managed to raise over half a million dollars in California under these conditions (lack of name recognition, etc).
Remember folks, at this stage in the game it's still up to us to do a good chunk of the fundraising. If you haven't done so already, please pop over and make your monthly donation to the Dean campaign. Remember to include your occupation and employer so that your donation will be matched.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
