But we certainly wouldn't call it media bias.
Democrat Noriega needs help cutting Cornyn's 10-1 lead in cash
Noriega losing fundraising race
Houston Democrat Rick Noriega's uphill campaign to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn began a year ago as a populist battle. But, with 113 days left until the election, Noriega has yet to show he can fan embers into a prairie fire.
Noriega's biggest problem is money, not having enough to get his message out to a statewide audience that can only be reached by television advertising, which costs as much as $1.4 million a week for a saturation buy.
Campaign finance reports to be filed today will show Cornyn has more than $9 million in the bank, while Noriega has $915,000.
Almost half of the $930,000 that Noriega raised in the quarter ending June 30 came from the national Democratic Web site ActBlue. The Daily Kos, a left-leaning Web site that has been supportive of Noriega from the start, called his recent fundraising "a disappointing take."
