The tenuous 2010 election prospects of appointed Illinois Democratic Sen. Roland W. Burris couldn’t be dramatized more starkly than the fundraising numbers his campaign released Thursday. He raised just $845 in the first three months of 2009.

Burris wasn’t a candidate or even a senator for the entire first quarter — he’s only been in the Senate since mid-January.  

In addition to that tiny pool of receipts, the campaign reported more than $111,000 in debts.
