Feder's Fat Wallet

Sandhya Somashekhar

Judy Feder, one of the Democratic challengers to U.S. Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) this year, has made CQ Politics' top 10 list of best-funded, opposite party challengers. She's ranked ninth in the cash-on-hand department.

Feder is known for her fund-raising abilities. In 2006, she amassed more than $1.5 million in her first match-up against the popular 14-term incumbent, who raised just over $1.7 million.

But as Wolf's supporters are fond of noting, 61 percent of Feder's money came from outside the state, according to The Center for Responsive Politics.

To see the latest fund-raising numbers for Wolf, Feder and their primary opponents, here's more from the nonprofit group's web site.

As us Wolf supporters are also fond of noting, Feder was just marginally outspent by Wolf, but lost by 16 points in a favorable year for Democrats. She has to do a lot better than keep par with Wolf to have any chance of running a competitive race.

Yes, its seems most of Feder's money comes from her liberal allies on the extreme left: College professors and those pushing universal healthcare. We do not nead another Congressmen to represent the elite left. These folks live in a dream land and are probably giving her money just so she quits asking. All the money in the world cannot help borderline socialist Judy Feder, who is just way too liberal for the moderate 10th. Feder is perhaps the most unelectable democrat in the state.
