Though Republicans are expected to have an overall spending advantage in the closing days of the campaign, largely thanks to outside groups like Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity, the Obama campaign has itself out-raised the Romney camp. All those dinners with Jay-Z and stalkerish date-like e-mails have produced a slight cash on-hand advantage for the president.
The Romney's campaign response: Bring in Kid Rock. Though "no contribution or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win," Romney/Ryan are trying to beef up their fundraising listserv by raffling off "a piece of history," a guitar signed by Kid Rock and Paul Ryan.
According to the promotion, the "total approximate retail value of the prize is $300." Which can be a perfectly nice gift, depending on whether one has the disposable income to refurbish the instrument and erase Kid Rock's signature.
