The Telegraph

The Telegraph reports that Kerry is out of money despite his wins.  This may mean this race could break wide open if Edwards gets the nod from Dean.  It looks like Kerry's wife has her money locked up in a trust.

Mr Kerry, until now the clear Democrat frontrunner, is in particularly dire need of the kind of funds that the Dean campaign generated last year. Despite – or perhaps because of – notching up victories in 15 out of 17 primaries, the campaign is almost penniless and Mr Kerry has mortgaged his Boston home for more than $6 million (£3.2 million). By contrast, the Bush campaign, which has barely started, announced on Friday that a record $150 million (£80.2 million) has been raised towards the President's re-election.
