(CNN) – Likely Republican presidential nominee John McCain raised a little over $12 million in February, two campaign sources tell CNN's John King.
That compares to the $35 million the Clinton campaign has reported raising in the same time period. Obama's campaign has not said how much it raised in February, but has indicated it is significantly more than Clinton's total.
Are we voting for Americas Next Top Fundraiser?
Is this a Reality Show or something?
What is Obama going to do with all his money if he keeps his promise and accepts public funding LOL
CNN is good printing the messages about someone being old. I guess candidatgfe being the messiah is going to keep them from getting old. PKC doesnt think their candidate is going to be old . He is over half way there now. He has surrounded himself by old airheads, like Kennedy, Kerry, Lewis, etc. He must not think he can do the Job by himself. I gues he promised them Health Insurance. The American taxpayer witll pay for their insurance. PKC really does sound like and educated person that faints at Obama rallies.
Maybe he can use that money to help fund the war in Iraq. You broke it, you buy it.
I feel for all you poor hacks that are throwing your Money away to these Politicians, who will tell you anything to get a buck.
As long as there are stupid Americans there will be Powerful Politicians.
wow....these too old comments are disgusting. What if people came on here and said "I won't vote for Obama because he's black" how would that be looked apon. They're both deplorable comments, only one of them is constantly said without people thinking twice about them.
know wonder mccain so badly wants obama to opt in to public financing...
Why are CNN "stores" all fluff lifted from campaign talking points. Do they do any actual news or reporting.
Every day I see headlines:
"Clinton says Obama is stupid"
"Clinton slams Obama over overdue library book"
"Clinton says Obama has bad penmanship!"
Seriously, what's the deal. Is this the Clinton News Network? Hardly "fair and balanced" (to borrow an infamous phrase)
Hey anon, ever hear of the Lugar-Obama Nonproliferation Legislation?
Guess his name is on it because they like him huh. This one right off the top of my head but just like all neocons if you can't find what y ou are looking for you make it up.
Campaign fund – $12,000,000
Watching McCain get eaten alive by Barack Obama in the upcoming debates
Common sense is what will get McCain elected in Nov. Not money..
Congratulations to Barack for buying his way to the nomination.
Why can Clinton get her fundraising total out before the month is over, but can't get her taxes out because she is too busy?
In an election year with an unpopular Republican president and administration, John McCain actually polls better than both of his Democratic opponents. And on much less money. To judge how John McCain will be as president, we do not need to depend on his books or speeches, we can simply look at his life.
I almost feel bad for him. Almost.
Chris, why the vitriol. Is this what Obama's teaching you HATE?
I thought he stood for change, respect and inspiration. Judging from the hateful attacks from several of his "followers", his message is a fraud.
Anyhow, McCain may not have raised as much as Obama or Clinton but at least he is getting support.
"McCain is an illegal immigrant from Panama."
In saying this you just insulted every military family that is ordered to live over seas and ends up having kids over there, no matter what country they are from. Do us all a favor and shut up..
Funny how someone like John McCain who supposedly has such a non-partisan voting record is bending over backward trying to act like a conservative. Ultimately it will be seen as the case since John loves to preach one thing and practice the opposite. A man who creates a foundation in his name in order to donate money to the schools his children are going to really just sad. I am very happy that conservatives are embracing him, shows just how flexible their moral beliefs are and how far they are from accomplishing their goals. The right still has not dealt with the reason why they lost big in 2006, and will continue to lose until their party is ripped apart by its own contradictions. Good luck with that, LOL.
I'd like to know where McCain's money came from... Lobbiest or concerned citizens?
Uncle Sam, the reason McCain is the leader is not because of him, it is because of his competition. He is the lesser of the really evils running for the Repub. nomination.
I have read "The Audacity of Hope" by Senator Obama, but I have also read "Faith of our Fathers" and two other books by Senator McCain. I like the senator from Illinois, but he just hasn't done anything. He preaches a new brand of politics, but has consistently practiced business as usual while serving as a Senator.
Don't even get me started on Clinton, I think the country is as tired of the Clinton name as they are of the Bush name.
John McCain is simply the best candidate. And here you see an Independent for McCain. If you get past all the rhetoric and half-truths thrown around by the Democratic candidates and the media that fact becomes very obvious.
to A REAL American – it's pretty obvious you don't read the news at all; rather, rely only on what you hear regarding your candidate. sen. obama's money comes from his individual supporters, through
online, donating a minimum of $25. i am one of those supporters and i am a republican. so, before you start typing your opinion or say something inane about the other person, take your head off the sand first and enjoy the breeze, and educate yourself. it's good for the soul!
SIGNIFICANTLY MORE? Does that mean $100 more or $1000 more? Why does not Obama fess up to the number? ...because ambivalence on the actual number conjurs up a higher amount in the listener's mind! Furthermore, I ask, why does the media appear to be satisfied with that answer? Had Hillary responded the way Obama did, it would be a totally differnt story.
" significantly more" ....I'm so tire of Obama's camp saying that.
Either they can't count or it is less and they won't admit it. Cough a TRUE number if you can boys.
Finally, something that seemed to unsettle Obama, it's about time. He is a good evangelist but I don't think Evangelist's make for good presidents. Why didn't he do something with his chairmanship on the foreign relations committee. He had plenty of time. I sure don't want to wait until he is darn good and ready to make a decision when we have so much going on in the world today.
