Who is running for President in 2012? Campaign financing filings give early indications.

The Texas Insider has this report.

Here is an excerpt:

"Congressional end-of-the-year campaign finance reports were due this week, and are already providing clues about the shape of the 2012 election landscape.  Several initial Federal Election Commission filings reveal more than a few House members begin the year surprisingly short on cash — even for the 1rst quarter of the 2-year election cycle.
Others are cash-flush, stockpiling money in anticipation of possible opportunities for higher office.
The Senate picture is a little hazier, largely because reports are just trickling in. But one thing is clear: Several of the senators most frequently cited as potential retirees will continue to be the subject of speculation because of their light fundraising."
