Now BMG has posted very positively about EW raising money, like this…
The second quarter numbers are in (via email; here’s a brief Globe story), and they’re even better than last time. Elizabeth Warren is a truly astounding fundraiser.
Warren’s overall take for April through June of this year was a staggering $8.67 million. That’s about $1.7 million better than last quarter. Overall (since the beginning of the campaign), Warren reports well over 40,000 donations from inside Massachusetts. The campaign also reports that June was Warren’s best single fundraising month yet, accounting for $3.1 million. Perhaps most impressive is this: over half the donations were for $25 or less, and 81% were $50 or less.
The campaign now reports $13.5 million cash-on-hand. Amazing.
But now Mitt Romney raises a boatload of money for the race and let the BS begin. Tell me why this is a “bad” thing. So is it good for challengers like EW… but wait, Mitt is the challenger.
Both campaigns sought to project broad bases of support. Romney’s reported that 94 percent of donations in July were $250 or less; Obama’s claimed 98 percent.
I think this is great news for Romney. But before you talk about anyone “buying the election”, consider this… in 2008 Obama outspent McCain $750 million to $288 million.
So, how do you view the support for Mitt?
