Obama could hit $60-70 million in February

Check this out:
http://www.patrickruffini.com/2008/02/21 obama-60m-in-february

As of Feb 21, Obama had 582,525 donors in 2008, that included 256,000 in January and approx 327,000 in February.  Now Obama's number of public donors in 2008 stands at a whopping 909,525 for 2008, meaning an amazing 650,000+ donors for February alone.  If he keeps the avg contribution of $140, that multiplied by 650,000 is a STAGGERING $91,000,000.  Now, clearly the Jan avg contribution has gone down quite a bit. I don't have anything to base that on other than me trying to be a bit conservative, but I am guessing that the avg may be down to $90-$110 per donor, which would put him in the $58.5 million-$71.5 million range.  WOW!!!

Huge Money Night for Obama

Obama's campaign has just crested 500,000 donors for 2008.  The counter is at 500,707.  That is a jump last night of over 32,000 new donors in less than 24 hours.  Coming on the heels of the announcement yesterday that he raised over 36 million in January and the enormous amount raised on Feb. 5th he is probably poised to beat his January figure in February.

UPDATE 2:

The exact figure is 8.4 million since Super Tuesday with 75,000 new donors. They have raised 10 million since Feb 1.

More Clinton cash

The Clinton campaign raised over $8.4 million online from 75,000 new donors since Super Tuesday, communications director Howard Wolfson said on a press conference call. Since February 1, the campaign has raised $10 million.

“We have closed that gap,” said Wolfson, who argued people were giving now because they know “the money is needed.”

The campaign is going up on TV today in upcoming primary states. Next week, they'll be up in Ohio and Texas. Wolfson anticipates that the campaigns will spend roughly the same amount on media over the next few races.

Now this has nothing to do with her fundraising but is truly fabulous development...

per The Page, once again...

http://thepage.time.com/2008/02/08/wolfson-to-msnbc-drop-dead/

Wolfson to MSNBC: Drop Dead

Clinton spokesman called reporter David Schuster’s statements about Chelsea Clinton being “pimped out” by the campaign to call superdelegates “beyond disgusting,” can’t envision participating in any more debates on that network.

UPDATE 4:

OK per Taylor Marsh, info which she attributes to the Clinton campaign, Hillary has now raised over 9 million since Super Tuesday from over 90,000 donors.

Moneybomb Planned For Edwards - January 18th

There's been a lot of talk in these parts about how the media is shutting John Edwards out of the race. He has been excluded from polling. His campaign events have not been covered. Other candidates with less to show for themselves receive more attention. Etc.....

All of the these things are true. And all of the solutions I've seen have merit. We definitely need to put pressure on the media to cover this election fairly. But the media is probably not going to alter course and suddenly exhibit a journalistic integrity that they haven't even thought about since their freshman year of college. They need to be given a reason to change course; a reason that fits their definition of news.

So either Edwards could engage in a high speed police chase with Britney's kids on his lap and a missing white girl in the trunk, or he could raise $7 million dollars in one day.
