TOM BYRNE

Tom Byrne (aka Brendan Thomas Byrne, Jr.) raised $1 million as a U.S. Senate candidate in 2000, before dropping out of the race. The former Democratic State Chairman never closed his campaign account and now has $1,006,957 cash on hand. He has a $690,000 debt — a loan he made to his campaign. That puts Byrne, the son of the former Governor, in good shape to run for something in the future.
