Cashing in

Ryan Meili's campaign has released the final results from its "money bomb" over the last week-plus. And suffice it to say that judging from how this appeal for cash exceeded expectations, there looks to be every reason for the NDP to make use of the same tactic in the future:
The Ryan Meili Money Bomb, while pointing out that Ryan Meili is actually older than former Manitoba Premier Ed Schreyer was when assuming office, called on recipients to donate $34, the candidate’s age, in the final week of May. The original target of $10,000 was surpassed on Friday. At the end of the week, the Ryan Meili Money Bomb had produced a fundraising windfall in excess of $12,000 mostly from new donors, an impressive groundswell of support for the Meili campaign.
