While former Senator Kruger has nearly half a million left in the bank, it is possible that he will spend it on legal fees (he spent $554,163.70 on this purpose over the past six months). Even if he does not, there is a good chance that other candidates or the party might not accept financial transfers from him. For this reason, we left his totals out of those the Democratic conference.
