Now I have been harsh on Mike Huckabee’s fundraising in the past (here and here), but he is putting together a great team. The question for him has always been how he would do in fundraising. Under the theory of, if your numbers are bad, get them out early, he has put his numbers out before the buzzer. At a Washington fundraiser yesterday, he said:
He said the first quarterly report for his presidential exploratory committee will show he has raised about $500,000, which he said was his goal.
Now that’s lame. National Journal put their fundraising projections much higher at $5m +/- $3m.

That’s not hitting expectations. It will be interesting to see how other 2nd tier candidates do.
