Hillary Clinton Raises $28 Million in Third Quarter, Barely Beating Bernie Sanders


(Bloomberg) The Democratic money primary has turned into a battle of big ticket fundraisers versus online donations.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign raised $28 million during the third quarter, her campaign said Wednesday, bringing the fundraising haul since her April launch to $75 million. Clinton spent the final days of the quarter on a cross-country dash to headline events where tickets generally cost between $1,000 and $2,700.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, raised $25 million, his campaign said Wednesday. He held just a handful of fundraising events all quarter, instead building his war chest through hundreds of thousands of online donations. Since he launched his White House bid in the spring, his campaign said it has collected over 1 million individual contributions.

The latest quarter was never expected to be quite as strong for Clinton as her first, yet the total will be parsed as show of relative strength amid a summer of questions about her use of a private e-mail server while at the State Department.

“Thanks to our supporters, we are able to meet our goals and build an organization that can mobilize millions of voters to ensure Hillary Clinton is their fighter in the White House,” campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement. .............(more)

1. Bernie was out pressing the flesh while Clinton was at small gatherings with wealthy people.

She failed to meaningfully exceed his take, and she forfeited lots of campaign time and money (expenses for travel etc) to do so.

Keep it up Hil!

He's not using PACs.

How about your candidate, is she loving the Citizens United ruling, is that paying off nicely?

28. The ruled are what they are

 

By not using one, Sanders is effectively hamstrung. Merely claiming that Pacs are cheating doesn't actually mean it's against the rules. Yelling that I want it now didn't work for Veruca Salt.

It is proving Bernie right and helping his campaign.

3. Hillary will have many more times money to fight the massive wave of GOP cash when the actual

campaign begins, including the Superpac entities. And every penny will be needed.

Pay to play ploitics is the unfortunate current reality and until CU can be legislated out of existence, and if you think mass money and the mass advertising it buys means nothing then how do you explain Trump?

free advertising stops...so will he.

PACs supporting her will though. And if you got out of your bubble you might discover that people really, really don't like PACs.

Much like voters dislike Congress, but keep reelecting the same people, what matters is how voters vote, not what they say.

we'll see in a few weeks what the burn rate is.

And by the way - this is the actual campaign.

So NOW who is the efficient one?

Just kidding, GO BERNIE!

20. That isn't counting the millions pouring into her Super Pacs, the sneaky way of Corporate donors

donating to their candidates of choice.

And we can't find out WHO is donating to her Super Pacs because of CU or how much.
And once again to the Corp media, it isn't the email debacle that has caused her to shrink in the polls.

It is the record on the Issues and voters having someone who better represents them on those Issues.

They can't tell the truth no matter how obvious it is to everyone else.

30. And one of the issues is getting big money out of politics.

The idea of who has the most money in this campaign is IMO just a pissing contest. The real issue is where did the money come from. And in that Bernie wins hands down. We the people.

32. I'm glad Bernie's money is coming from the people. He will not be obligated to anyone but the people

That is one of the biggest issues in this campaign.

He's the ONLY one who has refused the tainted money Citizens United has now made possible for Corporations to BUY politicians with, and worse, to hide who is buying our politicians by using Super Pacs to hide behind. This has to end and over 80% of the public now wants it to end.
