Word has it that donations are pouring in for both the Clinton and Obama campaigns, so gloating Obama supporters can step back a few paces, because Team Clinton is raising donations fast and strong.
As I reported here earlier this morning (or late last night), “The media and the blogosphere was a flutter on Wednesday about Hillary Clinton loaning her campaign $5 million.” The Clinton campaign had launched a fundraising effort on Wednesday and the word late last night from Taylor Marsh was that they had already “outraised their goal of $3 million in 3 days.”
Indeed they have “outraised their goal,” raising more than $4 million online since the Super Tuesday polls closed, and the donations keep pouring in. Marc Ambinder notes: “As of 11:00 am, the total is nearly $5M.”
The Clinton campaign reports the current fundraising effort is the campaign’s biggest day of contributions since Clinton launched her campaign and their goal set yesterday to raise “$3 million in three days,” far exceeded the goal in less than 24 hours. Their target is now “$6 million in 72 hours.” Let’s help Hillary exceed her goal – DONATE!
The Clinton campaign has seen an influx of 35,000 new donors in the past 48 hours, and they are keeping pace with the combined fundraising power of the Obama campaign, which has been aided by MoveOn.org, Barack Obama’s netroots supporters, and John Kerry’s 3 million strong email list, that Kerry has utilized for Obama since his endorsement.
Marc Ambinder also notes today: “(a MoveOn adviser says that none of the MoveOn money has been transferred to the Obama campaign, so the 7.2M is all indigenous.)
