Bush has $104 million in the bank

President Bush raised nearly $12.9 million for his re-election campaign last month and spent more than $7.5 million as he stepped up appeals to voters in the face of attacks from Democratic presidential contenders.

According to a campaign finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, Bush ended January with more than $104 million in his campaign war chest, a huge cash advantage over the Democratic candidates combined. -- Bush raised $12 million in January (Chicago Tribune)
