(Apparently he needs a little practice with the form; he reported $20,420 in gifts over $100, and another $20,420 in gifts under $100, for a grand total of, yep, $20,420. Oh,well.)
The fundraising total includes $900 from the candidate or immediate family. And $355 in loans forgiven.
The good news is, he’s only spent $600 so far (printing and T-shirts), so he’s still got some money left.
Odd factoid: Pretty much half of his total comes from a single, out-of-state family: the Boieses. David II, David III, Robin, Mary, and Jonathan Boies gave $2,000 apiece to Milne for Governor. Boies II is the famous lawyer of marriage-equality fame; the others are his wife and children. Go figure.
And only $1800 of his campaign kitty came from Vermont donors. And $1200 of that is from people named Milne. Let’s say the candidate has yet to establish broad appeal, shall we?
Odd factoid #2: Virtually all of Milne’s donations came in on the same day: last Friday, July 11. Until then, his campaign had raised a mere $5,100.
Milne fever… catch it!
