We’re now in the home stretch and heading for the May 2nd primary. The Plain Dealer reports on these FEC filings in today’s issue, too. Here’s one eye-opening paragraph:

Capri Cafaro, a Democrat, showed the most money committed to the race, pumping $865,000 of her own money into her campaign. Cafaro, a shopping mall heiress from Youngstown, had less than $1,000 in contributions from other donors.

Even Ohio’s Democrats aren’t foolish enough to run Capri “Shopping Mall Heiress” Cafaro in the general election … but I can still dream.
