BUSH RAISED MORE THAN $12.8 MILLION IN JANUARY 

President Bush raised more money in January than Kerry and Edwards combined

Let's hope that the Bush team will spend the money wisely because it's fantastic that we still have lots of money coming in, there are lots of Republicans with faith and we want to win just as bad as the Democrats do!

Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush raised $12.8 million in January for his election campaign, more than Democratic rivals John Kerry and John Edwards combined.

Bush has amassed a record $143.5 million through the end of January since his fundraising began last May, his campaign said in an e-mailed statement. In January, 71,000 people gave an average $175 contribution, and the campaign had $104.5 million cash on hand at the end of the month, the campaign said.

Kerry raised about $7 million from Jan. 1 to mid-February and North Carolina Senator Edwards raised $3.3 million from the Jan. 19 Iowa caucuses to Feb. 13, his campaign said last week.

This story was reported in Bloomberg.
