Castle Picks Up the Pace
Republican Michael Castle, Delaware's lone representative in the House and a Democratic target in 2008, doesn't appear to be taking the challenge lightly. Castle's campaign filed its first-quarter report on Tuesday, showing $1.2 million in cash on hand.
What's interesting is that Castle raised three times what he did in the same period two years ago ($95,591 vs. $29,955), and also has started raising money for the general election. Five donors have given the maximum $4,600 for the cycle; the 2005 first quarter report had exactly three itemized contributions.
In addition, Castle has been voting more often with a majority of Democrats in the House. According to Congressional Quarterly, Castle typically joins with Democrats between 20 and 30 percent of the time, but so far in the 110th Congress he has been voting with Democrats on six out of every 10 votes.
