That’s the scoop for an inside source, and my guess it’ll get much closer to $40M after his landslide win in Wisconsin.
Obama raised $36 million in January, and given his victories and momentum, it makes sense that he’d be on track to exceed that and have his best month ever right now. An Obama spokesperson declined to comment.
Separately, here’s another astonishing statistic: The campaign will soon report that it has enjoyed its millionth donor.
As I reported earlier today, the Obama camp quietly passed the half-million mark in donors for just this year. Now, in an email to supporters that just went out, the Obama campaign wrote: […] “We’ve crunched all the numbers and discovered that we are within striking distance of something historic: one million people donating to this campaign…We’re already more than 900,000 strong.”
One thing’s for sure, it’s tough for Hillary to make an “electability” argument when Obama keeps trouncing her in both money and donors.
