John Kerry’s March Madness

Want to be a part of March Madness without following basketball? John Kerry has his own form of March Madness to raise money for Democrats. The Politico reports:

Starting Wednesday, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee from Massachusetts is kicking off his own March Madness. His target audience is not hoops fans but political donors who may want to help Democratic candidates boost their first-quarter fundraising totals.

Kerry will ask his supporters – all 3 million of them on his e-mail list – to choose two Senate candidates and two House candidates from a “bracket” on his Web site. The four with the most votes will become – yes, you saw it coming – the “Final Four” and will receive an infusion of cash from Kerry’s donor base.
