Please Give Me Opinion on Obama Fundraiser Idea

Next Monday is Senator Obama's birthday. I have a mint condition replica (24x36") of his "Hope" poster. It is a replica and not an original, but still a kick ass poster. I have a mybo.com fundraisig page set up. Was thinking of having a raffle for the poster. Donate using my fundraising page and be entered in it. I will draw out a name on Monday. Start accepting donations tomorrow. Was thinking $5 per entry. $10 for 2 entries. $20 for 5. What you all think? Thanks

My Son Gabe's Obama Donation Link

The end of the month is approaching. Obama took it to McCain with donations last month, despite earlier media reports that he would not.

This weekend showed us that McCain will do anything and say anything to get elected, resorting to the typical tactics of the right wing.

Diaries/media have pointed out that there was a bounce after his trip abroad and he will be focusing on the economy now. Let's give Senator Obama the financial means to fight the smears and to get this man elected into office!!!

$1.2 million versus $11,000

As we see on this site and on other sites, there are some Clinton supporters who are not going to support the presumptive nominee, Barack Obama. Some even say they'll vote for McCain.

But how common is that?  Polls cast some light on that, but so do fundraising figures.  And in June, the pattern was stark.

Thousands of Hillary Clinton's donors gave at least $1.2 million to Democrat Barack Obama in June, accelerating a migration from her presidential campaign that began months ago.

Republican John McCain collected about $11,000 from that group in the same period, according to an Arizona Republic analysis of Federal Election Commission records.

The numbers suggest no widespread defections from the Democratic Party after its hard-fought primary season between Clinton and Obama ended the first week of June. McCain has hoped that many of Clinton's supporters would join him in an anti-Obama backlash.

In other words, of the $1,211,000 donated by Clinton supporters in June to either Obama or McCain, over 99% went to Obama and less than 1% went to McCain.

That's what Democratic donors are doing, folks - They're donating to Senator Obama.  Keep these realities in mind when you read diaries and posts from those Democrats who aren't supporting Obama.

Democratic Cong. Campaign C'tees Hit $100 Mil. On-Hand

With the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee now fully part of the two parties' presumptive nominees' campaign efforts and likely to spend the great bulk of their cash on the race for the White House, I'm splitting off the two national committees from my monthly tally of the finance filings of the parties' congressional committees to write about them instead in tandem with posts on the fundraising of John McCain and Barack Obama. So on their own, here are the latest numbers on the parties' congressional campaign committees:

CommitteeJune ReceiptsJune DisbursementsJune Cash-on-HandJune Debts & Obligations
DSCC (est.) $10,800,000.00$3,000,000.00$46,300,000.00$0
NRSC (est.)$6,000,000.00$3,000,000.00$24,600,000.00$0
DCCC$10,059,418.49$2,587,067.66$54,652,584.48$0
NRCC$6,083,456.25$4,273,426.10$8,464,831.65$0
Total
Democrats
$20,859,418.49$5,587,067.66$100,952,584.48$0
Total
Republicans
$12,083,456.25$7,273,426.1$33,064,831.65$0

Right now the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has close to a 2-to-1 cash-on-hand advantage over the National Republican Senatorial Committee, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's edge over the National Republican Congressional Committee on the House side is roughly 6.5-to-1. Overall, the two Democratic committees have a 3-to-1 lead in cash in the bank, as well as an astonishing $100 million available.

These numbers again underscore the fact that although the punditry can try to make it seem that the race for control of Congress, or even Democratic efforts to significantly increase their majorities in both Houses, are closer than they actually are, the money race makes it exceedingly difficult for the Republicans to do much to defend themselves this year. Coupled with the generic congressional ballot polling showing the Democrats maintaining a wide advantage within the electorate, these fundraising numbers show again that the Democrats maintain a real opportunity to bring sweeping change this fall -- a situation that can only occur, however, if the party remains diligent and energized through election day.
