Aronberg Leads Gelber in AG Fundraising

Dan Gelber's plan to win the netroots in the Senate primary wasn't really given much of a chance to work, but he does seem to be winning some early progressive blog buzz in the Democratic primary for attorney general. Unfortunately for him, he's trailing opponent Dave Aronberg in campaign cash. 

Gelber has collected $150,000, while Aronberg has amassed $173,000. 

It's not a huge lead by any measure, and it might be chalked up to the fact that Aronberg kicked off his campaign before Gelber got a chance to drop out of the Senate race and shift his attention to AG. It might also be because, as this Daily Kos diarists notes, Gelber doesn't know any rich former kick boxers with criminal records who sell sexual enhancements pills.
