Dean's Burn Rate Raises Questions

Howard Dean's campaign "paid at least $8.8 million for television advertisements, professional organizers in 13 states and maneuvers like an attention-getting plane tour to 10 cities" during the third quarter, the New York Times reports.

The Los Angeles Times says Dean's spending is "heightening speculation that he may opt out of the public financing system and its limits on expenditures during next year's primaries."

However, unlike Dean, the Washington Post notes that Sens. John Kerry and John Edwards and Rep. Richard Gephardt "spent more than they raised during the last quarter." The Raleigh News and Observer says Edwards "saw a sharp drop-off in fund raising during three months of heavy spending on his presidential race." And the Chicago Tribune says Carol Moseley Braun's campaign "is now almost $114,000 in debt."
