I’ve been slammin’ busy at work the past couple days, hence my lack of posts. However, I did get this in an email yesterday and wanted to quickly share it:
“News broke yesterday that a few wealthy Clinton supporters are gearing up for a massive spending campaign to boost her chances in the big upcoming contests in Texas and Ohio on March 4th.
The so-called “American Leadership Project” will take unlimited contributions from individuals and is organized the same way as the infamous Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.
ABC News reports that this group is seeking 100 Clinton supporters to each give $100,000 to fund its $10 million effort to promote Senator Clinton and “contrast” her positions with Barack Obama’s.
That’s the opposite of how politics should work, and the opposite of how Barack Obama has run this campaign.
The same day this group’s activity was revealed, we announced that nearly 1 million individual people have donated to this campaign.
Stand up against politics-as-usual. Be one of the million supporters who are calling out for change.
If you give as part of our matching program, your gift will be doubled by a previous donor. You can even choose to exchange a note with them about why you are part of this movement.”
His campaign, as of yesterday’s email, had 961,227 people who donated. That is freaking incredible.
The number of unique contributors is up to 980,611 as of 2P. His campaign will easily surpass 1,000,000 by the end of the month.
Yup – Obama is going to easily hit 1,000,000 donors this month. He’s at 990,688 as of three hours ago (~2P MST). That likely means he’s already hit the 1,000,000 mark. Unbelievable.
