BREAKING!!! Hillary raises over 10 million with 100,000 donors...UPDATED 4X

Fresh off the presses guys:

http://thepage.time.com/2008/02/08/clint on-camp-weve-raised-8-mil-since-super-tu esday/

Per The Page, Hillary has raised 8 million so far since Super Tuesday.

For those of you who needs further proof that Hillary is the new movement candidate, this should seal the deal!

UPDATE 1:

The campaign has a new goal of raising 10 million!

http://www.hillaryclinton.com/

Lets keep the contributions going guys. If we do this, we will not only show Hilary that we have her back, but we will also show the kids over at DailyObama that their irrational hatred for every thing Hillary has backfired.

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 from Ben:

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.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/

UPDATE 3:

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.

http://www.taylormarsh.com/

This is truly an amazing development. We were not supposed to be able to do this remember?

To all Hillary supporters out there, thank you for all the donations, the hard work, and the support!

Keep the money pouring!

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

So when Obama raises record funds, it's because his supporters are "latte drinking elites."  When Hillary finally starts raising more $ from small donors, it's because she's suddenly the "movement" candidate?  

Interesting.  Very interesting.  

That being said, impressive haul.  Looks like that one day story, where the Clintons tricked the media into thinking they were at a financial disadvantage, is officially over.

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

I don't think she's the "movement" candidate. Movements like Obama's tend not to be about issues.

True "movements" and their candidates are incubated over a long time. It took the Neocons 30 years to get Reagan.

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

Wait, does that mean you're comparing Hillary to Reagan...and that she therefore LOVES Reagan!

OK, just kidding around.  Hillary is fine and a better candidate than our party has had in a long time.  I don't have any trouble stating as much.  I simply think Obama is even better.  But to say she's the culmination of a movement strikes me as odd.  Given her and Bill's political history, the only "movement" she's the culmination of is DLC politics.  Which, of course, is where the Clintons came from.  That's not "bad," but it's far from ideal in my view.  But reasonable people obviously can and do disagree.

Weren't they at a financial disadvantage, before this avalanche of money came in?

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

It's hard for me to answer that.  On the one hand, she loaned her campaign $5 million.  On the other hand, the instant she made a concerted effort to raise money over the internet she put up around $10 million.  If that really was a surprise to them, and the campaign legitimately thought they were in trouble, that's amazing to me.  But it doesn't mean it's not true, I suppose.

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

Well, I mean, I assume they believed putting the word out that they were in trouble would result in a bunch of donations, which would mean they weren't in trouble any more.  But that doesn't mean they were actually flush with cash before the donations came in.  I still don't understand why some people regard this as a fundraising "ruse" or what have you.

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8 million so far...

Yeah, I'm not saying it was a "ruse."  I suspect they weren't as desperate as they let people believe, but that's just smart politics.  I'm just surprised that anyone -- including a whole lot of Obama supporters -- ever bought the idea that the Clinton's were somehow at a huge disadvantage b/c of money.  I, personally, have never questioned they would have enough.

That being said, Doing over 350,000 donations in 6 weeks is pretty damn impressive as well and getting to 500,000 by March 4 is impressive as well.

Hence the huge proportion of her fundraising that comes from maxed out donors.  I agree that he may be more appealing to the professional-class Democrat, but don't kid yourself that she's somehow the candidate of the little guy/gal.

Re: bitter bitter bitter

From USA Today:

Obama has raised more money than Clinton from small donors who can be tapped again. A third of his 2007 cash came from people who gave the maximum $2,300 limit, compared to half of Clinton's, according to the non-partisan Campaign Finance Institute.

A third of his donors are maxed out, half of hers are.  That's not such a huge difference.

The 3% was said on TV by one of the Obama staffers after Super Tuesday; it comes from the campaign.  Now whether its true or not is another debate, but the 3% was NOT made up by any of the supporters.

Re: The most important take away

My guess? Hillary will raise 20-30M this Month (perhaps even more).
But Obama will raise 30 to 60M

remember, Obama stopped counting on Thursday morning when he hit $7.5M. At the time, Hillary was around 4 to $5M.

She's kept counting and he has switched to a new campaign where he's having donors match first time donors. in other words, each donation for Obama has been doubling since Thursday morning.

by poserM 2008-02-09 10:32AM | 0 recs
Re: The most important take away

He didn't stop counting... he stopped publically announcing.  Its a smart strategic move... if Hillary beats him in this short term haul, he doesn't have to give a number and can say.. hey 500000 donors or donations or whatever.  If he beats her, he can wait and throw out the trump card.

Big Donor cash may pick back up too

From Marc Ambinder:

"New York biggie Alan Patricoff said that Clinton's self-contribution "really showed people that she was prepared to go to the line," and that he'd had several donors call him and mention the same thing.

Former Amb. Ed Romero, who until a few weeks ago was finance chair for Gov. Bill Richardson's campaign, said, that he, too, "had a call from one of my guys who said, "if she's in, I'm in."

Another donor asked for more events with Chelsea, which prompted Penn to note that Clinton won the votes of the youngest demographic -- 18 to 29 year olds -- in California and Massachusetts.

Dallas's Debbie Branson, a former president of the state trial bar, implored the campaign to send Clinton down to Texas pronto. "Y'all need to get to Texas... Texans are not afraid of a strong, independent woman... we need you to get here."

I read also a week or so ago that Clinton picked up a couple of Biden bundlers.  

So she may have some new inroads to fresh big donor cash.  She needs both, the bundled money and the internet cash, to keep pace with Obama.

PA will be HUGELY expensive.   Two campaigns hunkered down 4 weeks in PA with a huge media market in Philly.   PA will make Iowa like a small event.

Don't forget that the Clintons are around 14 years older than Obama.  How much do you think they had while Bill was still Gov of Arkansas?  That's not a very high paying job, there were no big speaking fees yet for Bill, and neither of them could sell a book nationwide at that point.

I will wager that when Obama is 60, he'll make them look like paupers.

Fair point (and I won't throw out some of the cheap shots that could easily be said about their time in Arkansas), but he will never make them look like paupers.  I would however say, Obama's financial situation will probably be very similiar at 60.  I think thats a fair statement.

It's a fake total

From the politico:

"
February 08, 2008
Read More: Hillary Clinton

'Primary funds only'

A source passes on a Clinton fundraising e-mail, listing a number of upcoming events (after the jump), which indicates the tension the campaign still has between actual campaigning and offline fundraisers.

One note for a "Dessert Reception with Senator Hillary Clinton at Whitehaven" on February 25 is a bit striking.

"Contribution: Raise $4,600 per person - primary funds only."

I haven't seen that last note before, and it's another sign that, while running up the fundraising score for much of the year in part with unusable general election funds, they now need the money...now.
"

Clinton has been raising money from people who are already maxed out on primary funds.  I have little doubt that she doesn't have access to a significant percentage of the money which she has raised in February.  It's just her way of trying to manage the expectations game.

As for your little piece of dirt, it is only natural that Hillary wants to raise funds for the primary now. She has plenty in the bank for the GE, and she needs the primary cash to offset what Barrack "Goldman Sachs" Obama has raised on Wall Street.

And, finally, why would anyone in their right mind defer to your biased opinion of what is the "truth.?"

Re: Yeah,

No, it doesn't make me mad at all.

The point is that she isn't reporting the amount of money she raised in PRIMARY funds, but in both GENERAL and PRIMARY funds.  The 10 million dollar figure includes both, but the general funds aren't currently helpful to her right now.  So it's not all that accurate.

You got it backwards while attempting to insult me, which is pretty funny if you think about it.

Not a peep about Clinton.   We now where 'The Nation' stands in this race.  In the tank for Barry Obama.   Screw 'em all.

Re: Some libturd from 'The Nation'

You should really keep a running list of all the media outlets and liberal publications that "have it in" for Hillary and are therfore invalid.  It's hard to keep up with the various people and organizations that you're now against b/c they made the horrific decision to support Senator Obama.

The so-called "liberal" media

I ditched MoveOn.org for their early endorsement of Obama.

not good enough

So what? Remember, he is the "special" one. What he does is both "unprecedented" and inimitable. So, if Hillary raises funds comparable to his, that shoots a whole series of "memes" down, doesn't it?

That's what all the "crowing" is about.

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary raises 8.4 million

Shuster's comments are almost certainly going to give the campaign another money boost. Good for Hillary for raising this money and with 10's of thousands of new contributers.

If you stand up for Hillary today,

Re: If you stand up for Hillary today,

And she has done WHAT to prove that?  Because voting for Iraq and the Bakruptcy bill sure wasn't standing up for me or my family.

The new movement candidate?
Take a look at this handy chart:
http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/select .asp?Ind=K02

If Hillary can claim the mantle of a "new movement" and still pocket more lobbyist money than all the remaining candidates combined, then please explain what kind of movement you are referring to.

Seems like somone if fudging the numbers..

Where is the documentation? It seems the Hillary camp is quite will to throw out numbers with no facts to see where this money is actually coming from. They say "lots of new donors"...Yeah right.

How about that loan? Who is more transparent about fundraising?

Your link. . .

. . .says nothing about fundraising transparency. Nor does it say anything about whether or not there are "lots of new donors" giving to the Clinton campaign. In fact, your link says nothing at all, except that Obama is afraid to debate Hillary and that he is making some characteristically self-righteous, contradictory, and incoherent comments about Hillary's income tax returns.

Re: Seems like somone if fudging the numbers..

So you want to talk about campaign disclosure?

Hillary scores 89.7% for disclosure from Open Secrets, while Obama scores 82%.  Anything else?

Re: BREAKING!!! Hillary

Just watched CNN, and they disucssed how much Obama has been raising and how Clinton has loaned herself 5 million.  they COMPLETELY IGNORED how much Clinton has raised over the past few days and said all her donors are maxed out.  These networks are such vile excuse for journalism.

Atleast Hillary doesn't beg like Obama

Folks,

Read this : http://www.techpresident.com/blog/entry/ 21350/obama_did_i_mention_the_money

I get lots of emails demanding money from Obama camp. I had signed up with both campaigns to learn about the issues and what each candidate stand for, but mostly what I get is fund raising emails from Obama, Michelle, Kerry, etc. Once Michelle sent this mail saying she is asking for money because Obama doesnt like asking. Then after 7 days, an email from Obama demands money. How arrogant and deceptive.

Atleast Hillary's emails have some non-money focus. She highlights events, issues, etc.

Re: Atleast Hillary doesn't beg

I love this comment!  I so agree....  At least two of my neighbors switched from Obama to Clinton because his 'send money' letters were so intense.

BREAKING EVEN HARDER!!!!

donations to campaigns under 200 dollars aren't itemized on the FEC report, so both campaigns, but more likely Hillary's based on anemic online fundraising in the past, could be lying!

Love that everyone on this site really has a nose for and rejects propaganda.

Re: BREAKING EVEN HARDER!!!!

Yes, so let's start by rejecting your propaganda. WE all know that below $200 isn't itemized - how does that make it more likely that Clinton is lying? If we accept your absurd claim that either campaign is lying, wouldn't it be more likely that Obama was lying, considering that his campaign constantly trumpets the huge amounts of small donors they have?
