A U. S. News & World Report political report begins:
The AP reports this morning that Sen. Barack Obama "raked in" $40 million last month leaving Sen. Hillary Clinton "and her $20 million in the fundraising dust and stuffing his campaign treasury so he can outspend her in the crucial Pennsylvania primary."The rest of the story’s here. It provides information about the states where Obama's spending the money.
Good, that takes care of the where.
But what about the who?
Who gave that $40 million?
Yes, I heard about the “ people who believe in Obama” and are sending in $1 and $10 contributions.
That’s all very touching, but it’s usually not the way you get to $40 million, at least not in a month.
And Obama’s been out-raising Clinton for many months. By now his contributions must total in the hundreds of millions.
Who’s giving him that money?
MSM needs to tell us more about Obama’s big money sources and what their interests are.
If MSM news organizations aren’t sure how to do that the answer is easy: they just do it the same way they would if a Republican was raising the kind of money Obama is.
