Clinton Campaign Reports $45 Million in the Bank
By JILL GARDINER
Staff Reporter of the Sun
July 16, 2007



Senator Clinton ended the first half of the year with $45 million of cash in the bank for her presidential campaign, nearly $9 million more than her leading Democratic opponent, Senator Obama.

The number is noteworthy because Mr. Obama out-raised Mrs. Clinton during the last fund-raising quarter. He raised about $32 million, while she raised $27 million.

A senior adviser to Mrs. Clinton, Howard Wolfson, said last night that $33 million of that $45 million is earmarked for the primary election, while $12 million is slated for the general election if she secures the Democratic nomination. He also said Mrs. Clinton spent just over $12.5 million in the last quarter.

While the 2008 presidential campaigns released their fund-raising figures earlier this month, they had until midnight this morning to submit more detailed reports to the Federal Election Commission.

Senator Obama, whose fundraising prowess has stunned political analysts, ended the first half of the year with about $36.3 million dollars in cash, and the latest filing shows that he spent more than $16 million between April and June.
