Republicans are behind the Democrats in fundraising

by Ken Feltman

With the Supreme Court striking down key parts of McCain-Feingold campaign finance legislation, GOP officials hope to benefit from corporate election spending. But business is always more cautious than organized labor. It may take the cautious business community too long to digest the new rules to be a major factor in November.

Corporate officials that Radnor has spoken with seem to want to learn more about what the law permits and what others are planning before they decide whether to jump in. So the GOP may first need to educate corporate America about the opportunities before corporate dollars begin to get behind Republican candidates in a big way.

In short, the GOP could be disappointed that the expected flow of dollars may take more time to reach GOP campaigns than expected.
