A final note for the week....

Republican congressional candidate Sean Sullivan filed his year-end campaign finance report with the FEC this week. (The reports are normally due on the 15th of the month following the end of each quarter -- except at the end of the year in the non-election year when the deadline is the end of January.)

Anyway, Sullivan reported raising just under $55,000 in the final three months of the year. A bitmore surprising is that his filing also reports spending almost $30,000 during those three months -- for a net gain of about $25,000. According to the filing, Sullivan had $127,194.09 cash on hand as of Dec. 31, 2007.

Courtney's campaign hasn't filed yet, and likely won't until the end of the month. According to Oct. filing, the incumbent had over $767,000 cash on hand. That figure will likely be close to, if not over, the $1 million mark when it does file -- giving him about a 10-1 margin over Sullivan starting the year.

Sullivan's year-end report is disappointing to say the least and not likely to energize the national Republican Congressional Campaign to make this a targeted race.

Ray, I'm there any word about whether or not Simmons is or will be helping Sullivan? Could change the nature of fundraising and visibility...
