THE PLANK DECEMBER 19, 2006
From an Arizona Republic article headlined "McCain tapping Bush's donors":
An Arizona Republic analysis of Federal Election Commission records also shows that nearly seven out of 10, or 436, of the donors who gave to Bush in 2004 and have since given money to McCain's Straight Talk America PAC, are new supporters of the Arizona senator.
They were not among contributors to McCain's presidential campaign in 2000, when he bucked the GOP establishment by running against then-Texas Gov. Bush for the party's presidential nomination.
