Some Second Quarter Numbers

Via CNN - Obama raises $32.5 million, thought to be a Democratic party record
Presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama raised at least $32.5 million in the second quarter of 2007, topping his first quarter effort by nearly $7 million, the Illinois Democrat's campaign announced Sunday.

The Obama campaign said the senator raised "at least" $31 million in the second quarter in primary money, and a total -- counting $1.5 million in general election funds -- of $32.5 million.

Senator Clinton has not reported her second quarter number yet but
Spokesman Howard Wolfson said Thursday that the New York senator and former first lady expected to be out-raised by Obama. Wolfson said she would raise "in the range of $27 million" in the second quarter, putting her total take for the year north of $53 million.
Looking down the candidate list, according to the article, Edwards raised $9 million, Richardson raised $7 million, and Dodd raised $3.25 million.

I'm glad to see that Obama is ahead of Clinton. Hillary likes to try to make people think that she is the candidate apparent, so to speak. If Obama keeps raising more money than her, it will make that line a little harder to sell.
