impressive numbers though one needs to drill down for a further explanation. Pruski donated a little less than half of his own money in the form of a loan to his campaign. $9K. it's not accurate to say that most of his money came from donations. most came from a combination of a loan and donations from political action committees. pruski only raised about $3K from individual donors. hymes has a very interesting report in that most of his donations are from individual donors - suggests that he possibly has more grassroots support though this is not always accurate. up to three others may join the primary.
