Is Dan Seals Running Out of Cash? (UPDATED)

The Daily Herald Blog Animal Farm is reporting that 10th District Dem challenger Dan Seals had only $240,479 on hand on Sept. 30. Animal Farm also noted that Seals didn't really raise as much as he said when Kirk forced him to make a statement with Kirk's early release of his $850,000 cash haul for the last quarter. In fact, turns out Seals only raised $660,936 in the last three months – not the $700,000 Seals claimed. Kirk hasn't released his cash numbers, but the word is he is still sitting on seven figures for the last push. Maybe Seals is sending up the flares to DCCC even as we speak...

UPDATED 10/17/08: Here's the Daily Herald talking about Kirk's huge cash advantage. And visit Capitol Fax Blog for some further updates and analysis on the Seals veteran ad issue.

I don't know about you TA, but I'm sick of every leftwing group full of unemployed undereducated uninformed losers coming up to the north shore to tar our congressman and preach to us on how to run our country.

It's high time to clean these people out once and for all and I fully hope and expect Mark will use every last cent of the 2 million he has left to open the fire house and extinguish these nutjobs and their advocates like dan.

So that is why Seals sends email requests for money every 12 hours...

Kirk cash - $2m
Seals cash - $.2m

Dan - you are out of money two weeks before the election!

It's misleading, dan bought 290k/week of t.v. time in late september so we'll have to see his goofy smirk and wackjob 9-11 theorists in between the latest obama love stories on nightly news.

Mark still will outspend him 3-1 in these last few weeks.

Also good to see in the highland park news that the columnist supported 2 other democrats and glowingly mentioned Mark. Shows not everyone east of 41 is on the goofy juice.

anon 11:44, why don't you go where you belong which would be on that catwoman's site. Mark Kirk has no interest in the governor's mansion. He will use his campaign cash appropriately in the last 17 days of this campaign. Don't you malcontents ever tire of spreading your venom? All the endorsements, with more to come, demonstrate the strength and the depth of Mark Kirk's approval for all that he represents, both past and future. Seals has done nothing, zero, nada, zippo for anyone at any time in his 'career'. He 'sings' from the Democrat playbook but has no ideas or plans of his own. I'm tired of hearing his clap trap voice. Hopefully he and his followers will finally disappear on November 5. You included.

It is a fact that Andy McKenna and the hierarchy of Team Kirk have openly speculated on runs for Governor for years so this is nothing new. Next year would be a terrible year to do it and the next time the option would arise in 2014, Mark would be positioned to run foreign ops.

That video is indicative of how dumb dan is and Mark outclasses him in every way.

Just curious 1:22...where do you get the "fact" that McKenna and Team Kirk have been looking at the Governors Mansion for "years"?

You must be from team catwoman, Mark has been the only serious up and comer in the party for the last decade, thus the speculation and discussion. It is also hard for people in chicago to take downstaters like lahood and shimkus seriously.

sorry in advance for grammar and spelling. On the train headed home and dan seals is trying to get people to talk to him and handing out intro flyers - not a lot of takers. Guy just got on the train and tossed the flyer in the trash saying "that's where that guy belongs" ouch!

guy is talking behind me- vet ad has him steaming!!!

Desperation for Dan is setting in, the guy is in serious financial and political trouble and realizes he's going to wake up in 3 weeks with no job and no future.

What a cruel sick thing he is also to attack Mark on his patriotism and service to his country.

More pathetic Seals stunts. When you go to the early voting sites you'll be greeted by a goon with a handout that shows Dan and the messiah, arm in arm. The pup can't stand on his 'merit' so he has to show that he and the messiah are one in the same. Seals is sending out mailer after mail begging for more campaign cash to keep on going. I still suspect that the cash rich DCCC will come riding in to help him. I'll say it again: we need to get out our vote and keep on pushing with only 16 days to go.

Hey TA are you going to comment about this morning's News Sun story regarding voter registration fraud concentrated in the 10th district?

Team America said...

Hit "refresh" and you'll find the story!!!

Great minds think alike.

I am a diehard and still believe in our statewide team.

Keith Gray and Tim Stratton should call a press conference for tomorrow and pledge to introduce legislation similar to what Bush did on voting integrity. The Democrat voting plan these days seems to be felons and the dead animals they sleep with in the streets and that's just unaccetable.

It would be a timely press conference and a great chance to beat up on the most worthless leaders alive: Karen "May I Raise your taxes" and Terry "Linked to Dirty Politics".
