Slate ’s Nathan Heller points out that both HillaryClinton.com and BarackObama.com now redirect visitors directly to their contributions pages. (Actually, it looks like BarackObama.com just reverted as I was prepping this post.)
Best Fundraising Ploy of the Day goes to the
that Clinton loaned herself $ 6.4 million in April and May. Clinton’s
two biggest fundraising surges
were after her Pennsylvania victory and the
that she’d loaned herself $5 million. (Obama got quite a boost from both, as well.) Today’s loan announcement, coming on the heels of her Indiana squeeker, gives her the best of both worlds.
But neither candidate has released post-Indiana fundraising numbers, which suggests that their victories
didn’t yield quite the cash surge
that Pennsylvania did.
