The coordinated campaign had a budget of about $500,000 ($500,995.00 raised,
$498,275.31 spent. These figures do not reflect money that was raised
separately to assist local House and Senate candidates with direct mail.
The coordinated campaign worked extensively with Kennedy Communications
for persuasion and GOTV mail). The bulk of the money came from the
DGA, phone calls from Governor Minner, money raised by Senators Biden and
Carper, and organized labor; the DNC chipped in base amount of $2,500.
Major expenditures were for staff and field offices and direct mail.
Lee Ann Walling observed (Oct. 3, 2005 phone conversation) that the new
campaign finance laws "threw us all for a loop for a while" as they needed
to figure out what federal/nonfederal breakdown the law permitted.
Grassroots Democrats, a 527 organization, held three days of training in
Washington, DC in February 2004 that proved useful. The Democratic
Governors Association made Delaware a priority and paid for several of
the coordinated campaign staff, notably Stephone Mickler and Aaron Harris,
who both worked on Ronnie Musgrove's 2003 gubernatorial campaign in Mississippi.
