Marc Ambinder postulates that Rudy will out-raise Gov. Romney this quarter:
A back-of-envelope calculation: If Rudy raised $13M and kept his burn rate at 50%, he’ll have about $22M in the bank. If Romney raises, at a low end, $15M (including his own contribution) and wound up spending $.75 cents per dollar, he’ll have less than $8M in the bank. (His campaign reported cash-on-hand totals of more than $12M last quarter, but, per Political Money Line, it had debts of nearly $10M.)
So — the answer to the first question we posed: Giuliani may have between $11M and $15M more to spend than Romney as of the end of the third quarter.
