So, remember all the hoopla about John Kerry's fundraising disadvantage? The basic argument went like this: because there were so many democratic primary candidates, and because the DNC wanted a unified effort in the presidential election, the Democratic convention was scheduled early in the summertime. As soon as John Kerry reported for duty and accepted the nomination, he could no longer raise campaign money. Hence, he was supposed to be at a desperate disadvantage to Bush, who started with a higher base of funds, and who had a late Republican convention, which allowed him more time to continue raising cash.
There is, of couse, a loop-hole. The Democratic and Republican parties can continue raising money to spend on unendorsed advertisements. For example, negative ads.
