The first republican political add of the year points out that the democratic front runner John Kerry has taken large contributions from lobbyist

While the Bush campaign has strongly criticized Democratic challenger John Kerry for being beholden to "special interests," the president accepted more in direct contributions from lobbyists in one year than Kerry did in the past 15 years... Although the campaign refuses to release exact fundraising totals for its big-money bundlers, lobbyists last year collected at least $6.5 million in bundled donations for Bush or 10 times what Kerry raised in direct contributions from lobbyists over 15 years.

*In spite of campaign finance reform, fundraising has reached new records...thanx to gwb's corporate ties
