Obama Raises Big Bread
Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has raised a whopping $25-million dollars in the first quarter of 2007. CNN reported that the figure nearly matched the $26-million dollars raised by Hillary Clinton.
In a news release, Penny Pritzker, Obama's finance chair said:
"This overwhelming response, in only a few short weeks, shows the hunger for a different kind of politics in this country and a belief at the grass-roots level that Barack Obama can bring out the best in America to solve our problems."
