Couldn't he just cut me a check?

The Washington Post's Jonathan Weisman reports a calculation done by Alex Vogel, a Republican strategist, showing that Romney has spent $1.16 million per delegate at this point in the race. At that rate, it would cost Romney $1.33 billion to become the Republican presidential nominee. And remember, a lot of the Romney campaign's money is coming from Romney himself -- in the fourth quarter of 2007, the campaign announced over $27 million in total receipts; $18 million of that was Romney's personal money. --Salon

If I were a rich man ... well, I wouldn't run for president.

Damn Jim, within a day he reads what you have to say and gets out. Write something about Clinton lending herself money. Please?

Jay, maybe you should have targeted Giuliani: He spent over $65 million on his bust of a campaign. Not his own money, but still...
