A week ago I emailed Dutch Ruppersberger (MD-02 D) and asked kindly that he consider donating his sizable campaign warchest to local Democrats or to the DCCC. Well, I guess Dutch saw it as some sort of attack on his fund raising efforts. I meant no such disrespect, and honestly I didn't expect any sort of response.
I was surprised yesterday when I got a phone message from Rep. Ruppersberger, explaining his contributions this year in great detail. I can't list them at this time (left my cell phone at home), but they were considerably large. I'll update this entry soon enough, if only so others can get an idea of how much work and cash some Democratic Reps are putting into this '06 election.
