Obama beats Clinton
It seems that Sen. Clinton’s camp wants Sen. Obama to keep his day of glory minimized to one day. When Sen. Clinton released her first quarter fundraising numbers, she originally did not reveal the breakdown between primary and general election funds. But given the ground breaking news of Sen. Obama’s announcing that he only raised $1 million dollars less than Sen. Clinton, her hand was forced.
SUre enough, it appears that Sen. Obama’s funds raised for the primaries surpassed those of Sen. Obama. Here’s an excerpt from an ABC article,
ABC News has learned that the $23.5 million Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., raised for his presidential campaign for use in the primaries is more than that raised by the Democratic frontrunner, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.
Of the $26 million Clinton has raised in the first quarter of 2007 for her presidential campaign, approximately $20 million is to be used in the primaries and caucuses, sources told ABC News.
