Obama To Raise “Considerably More” Than Jan.’s $36M Haul

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Money

From Politico:

Obama spokesman Bill Burton, anticipating the Clinton campaign’s announcement that she has raised roughly $35 million this month, tells me that the Illinois senator has raised “considerably more than that” in the same period.

Obama has claimed more than 1 million donors over the course of the campaign, and raised $36 million last month, with much of it coming through his website.

Could he break $50M? Because “considerably more” means more than an additional $10M. I guess we’ll see what that phrase means soon enough.

    I gotta question your political interpretation skills here. The only safe assumption when a politician says considerably more is that it means “at least one penny more.”

    Well, when you consider it, that is more. ;-)

    [...] I speculated about this earlier, but now Marc Ambinder shares some gossip… But though Barack Obama’s campaign is keeping mum, you can bet that somewhere in Chicago, David Plouffe is cracking a smile. [...]
