VoiceMontana Gov. Steve Bullock was told how he could qualify for the next presidential debate, but it didn't make much sense: Spend $60.
Fuzzy math: Democrats spend big to draw small-dollar donors
"You spend $60 on Facebook right now to get a $1 donor," Bullock said last week while campaigning in Iowa , referring to the 130,000 donor threshold that is one of the requirements to reach the debate stage in Houston next month.
Facing a Wednesday deadline, a handful of Democratic White House hopefuls are racing against time — and odds — to qualify, trying desperately to meet the donor targets as well as reaching 2% in four approved public opinion polls.
