Background: Hatch is running what he calls a "skinnycat" campaign.  Here's some background on that campaign from the Hatch website:
"On July 1, 1999, the day Senator Hatch announced he was running for President, another candidate announced he had already raised $36 million.  Just before Senator Hatch's press conference officially starting his campaign, Michele Hodgkins of Salt Lake City pulled out her checkbook and wrote a check for $36.  'Now,' she said, 'if one million people do this, you'll have the same amount as the candidate with all the money.'"
