DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe has been especially adept at bringing in the big paychecks. Some estimate that in a good week, he can pull in between $5 million to $10 million for the party alone. “He’s great with the cash, I’ll give him that,” says a senior DNC board member.
Daschle and Gephardt are now pushing hard on the cash trail, in part, because while the big donations may dry up in 2002, they are looking to latch on to donors for their long-term career goals: a presidential run in 2004.

If he’s going to have a shot in 2004, he has to start building the network.”
