WASHINGTON (CNN ) – Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign lost a seasoned fundraiser Friday to Democratic rival Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York.
Bob Farmer has worked on Democratic presidential campaigns since former Sen. John Glenn’s presidential run in 1984. Until recently, he served on Obama’s national finance committee before deciding to leave for the Clinton camp. Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton told CNN that Farmer has not raised any funds for the campaign.
When asked what Farmer did for the campaign, Burton told CNN “nothing.”
