campaign cupboard looks mighty empty for GOP blogger/state legislator

I just checked my wallet and pockets and discovered I have $27.43 in my possession, which is 43 cents more than GOP blogger/state representative Stacey Campfield (18th house district) has in his entire campaign bank account. According to a story in today's Knoxville News Sentinel, Campfield reported having a whopping $27 in his campaign kitty, compared to more than $10,000 his GOP primary opponent has in the bank. It appears, according to the KNS, that Campfield's largest contribution has come from a former top aide to Gov. Don "state income tax" Sundquist.
To top it off, a Democrat in the race, Schree Pettigrew, who is running for office for the first time, has more than $7,000 in the bank.
Campfield might soon have to consider banner ads on his blog to fund his race.
