Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) raised at least $25 million for his presidential campaign in the first quarter of the year, putting him just shy of Sen. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, who made a splash with her announcement Sunday that she had drawn a record-breaking $26 million.
Uh…dayum! And 23.5 available for the primaries. Shit. Gotta figure that’s the biggest primary stash.
Looks like the Senator from Illynoi also has the grassroots support as expected:
Obama appears to have surpassed Clinton in several ways: He reported donations from 100,000 people, double the 50,000 people who gave to the New York senator’s campaign. He raised $6.9 million through donations over the Internet, more than the $4.2 million that Clinton raised online.
So the run down on Q1 is this:
Clinton – $26 million
Obama – $25 million
Edwards – $15 million
Richardson – $6 million
Dodd – $4 million
Biden – $2 million
This is crazy money for a quarter among Dems. Bodes very well. There is obviously alot of people very interested in seeing a Dem Prez in ’08…and they are parting with some bones to make it happen. Good stuff.
