Democrats Lead by $100 Million in the Money Race

Democrats have raised $100-million more than their Republican counterparts in the race for the White House. On top of that, wealthy Republican donors are switching sides. From the Wall Street Journal:

Democrats have taken the lead by exploiting widespread disapproval of President Bush and the Iraq war to develop a more robust online network of new, small donors, as well as to gain traction with deep-pocketed business contributors.
The Wall Street Journal reports about 58% of all campaign donations have gone to Democrats -- with more than a year before the election. On top of that, many of the contributors to Democrats can give more -- because they haven't given the $2,300 limit. (WSJ)
