Cravins cash. Can he make a run of it?

The Independent - Politics 07.23.2008

BOUSTANY POSTS BIG FUNDRAISING ADVANTAGE OVER CRAVINS Having entered the 7th District Congressional race relatively late, state Sen. Don Cravins Jr. has a lot of catching up to do in the fundraising department. Both Cravins and incumbent Congressman Charles Boustany posted their July quarterly campaign finance reports last week, and Boustany has a significant financial edge. Boustany reported raising $320,812.27 in the period from April 1 to June 30, with a total cash on hand war chest of $669,519.39. Cravins, who only began raising money in the latter part of June, reported raising $107,072.77, with $104,840.35 cash on hand.

Hard to run against an incumbent, but if Cravins keeps raising money at this rate, he could definitely make a splash.

I find it hard to believe that Boustany was elected to congress the same time as Melancon. What a difference!

Has Boustany done anything of note besides vote with his party consistently? Anything?
