Posted at 7:52 AM on April 6, 2007 by Bill Wareham (1 Comments)
The fundraising numbers for the first quarter of the year are in, and Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, and Mitt Romney are setting new records. At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller looks at who's winning the money race. Her guests are Anne Kornblut, a reporter for the Washington Post, and Anthony Corrado, a professor of government at Colby College and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
Editorial cartoons attempt to meld opinion, humor, and politics. At 10 a.m., Kerri examines the particular challenges of covering war in the format. Guests include Tim Kreider, an editorial cartoonist whose satirical weekly strip called The Pain -- When Will It End? appears in an alternative weekly, the Baltimore City Paper. His two most recent books are Why do they kill me? and The Pain when will it end?; and Matt Davies, an editorial cartoonist for The Journal News. Davies won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartoons, and was past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. He was born in England (lived here 20 yrs), and his cartoons are syndicated in over 80 newspapers.
How much money is in the public campaign financing fund? How much money added each year?
