Updated Funndraising Information

Obama hits 25 Million.

Not a huge Obama fan, but love to see him grind it out with Hillary. A challenged Hillary is an ugly Hillary. It will be especially beautiful to see it go on for almost a year before the Republicans presumably get a go at her. It would also be interesting to count the puff pieces each will get in the coming year and keep score.

Additionally, it appears that Mitt Romney has about 11.4 Million cash on hand giving him a burn rate of about 50% for the first quarter.

I fully expected it to be worse than that. 50% for a candidate with little name recognition isn't that bad. It will be interesting to see if it was spent effectively over the next few weeks.

The more capped donors of Clinton was what I was expecting. She has connections and with very wealthy insiders. I guessed that they would donate the max, but that she would be then left appealing to "new" donors outside the Clinton network.

I WASNT expecting the shear amount raised by Obama and in uncapped numbers.

I agree with you that 2nd quarter figures will be VERY revealing.
