Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani President Campaign Money Burn Rate Is Important

Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani President Campaign Money Burn Rate Is Important

While Mitt Romney leads the Republican presidential primary with his raising $20.7 in the first quarter, he has spent almost 13 million dollars so far. Rudy Giuliani, who has raised substantially less, 13.8 million has spent approximately 5.6 million. Which means that without counting any of the money being raised during this year, Republican Romney has only 7 million in the bank while Giuliani has a little over 9 million. The numbers are based upon Federal Election Commission filings.

Without doubt, Romney has been forced to spend to get his name recognition out to America while Giuliani has more universal awareness, primarily due to 9/11 and the perception that he handled the tragedy effectively.

However, the key for these candidates and others is not who has the most money, but, the dollar per vote in key states such as Iowa, New Hampshire and the first line states during the primaries. In 2004, Democrat Howard Dean was a money machine and was the man to beat until the “squeal heard around the world” which made his campaign drop like a rock.

The money factor goes to the issue of invincibility and momentum that a candidate can carry a nation. Still, the key question under the current system is whether the voters in the early primaries will be persuaded by the money raised or the win ability”of the candidates.”

Could this be the GOP Ticket? Giuliani - Romney or better yet The Rudy - Mitt machine
