Obamas Money Mountain

Text settings


Obama's September fundraising explains why he's been able to outspend John McCain so widely: He raised over $150 million in September alone, adding 632,000 new donors.

At some point it becomes difficult to actually spend all this cash. Hence reports of Obama advertising on country music stations in Miami or on video games. Anything to, you know, get rid of all this cash... Notable too that the Obama campaign is expanding its list of target states once more, this time buying time in West Virginia.
