Description

The Democrat reports that George W. Bush "nearly doubled Al Gore's money-raising during the first three weeks of Gore's legal challenge of Florida's election." Bush also raised more money than Gore in Florida, despite the state's razor-thin margin among voters. "Not only did Bush get more money, his contributions seemed to reflect a broader appeal. Almost 22,000 contributors donated an average of $216, compared with Gore's 1,258 contributors who donated an average of $1,265." Federal law does not require recount committees to report contributions, but both campaigns posted their reports on their Web sites.
