Clinton campaign to release March figures in two weeks

Moments after the Obama campaign announced that it had raised $40 million in the month of March, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson told reporters on a campaign conference call that the New York senator's fundraising figures for that month would not be released until April 20 - the official FEC deadline, two days before the Pennsylvania primary.

"We knew that he was going to outraise us, he has outraised us for the last several months," said Wolfson. "We will have the resources that we need to compete and be successful in the upcoming primary states."

He said the Obama campaign had already outspent Clinton's in Pennsylvania about 4-to-1 and that he expected her campaign would be outspent about 2-to-1 on TV ad buys going forward.

Wolfson added that they expected Clinton's tax returns to be released within the one-week time frame she had promised. Clinton actually made the pledge eight days ago.

    Trust CNN, are you nuts?

    CNN's best political team is the best hacks in the country when it comes to this election.

    NBC/MSNC I understand. They are still pissed at Hillary for getting that idiot of TV Journalist fired after his remark on Chelsea.

    Even Fox news took Obama's side on the picture thing the other day. You would have to be a total blinder ridden supporter of Hillary not to see that.
    America isn't fooled by incorrect comments on here so don't bother.

    Stop complaining about Obama's experience. We have the most experienced two in the White House now. If this is what experience brings, then let’s elect a rookie.

    ENOUGH ALREADY!!! The Clinton campaign is waging an "all out" attack on you fine people of Pennsylvania. They are betting on you being nieve enough to believe that there is some "good" trustworthy reason why they cannot provide you with information that will be meaningful in you making your decision as to who deserves your vote on April 22. Do you really want to support someone who is disrespectful of your intelligence and ability to take all there is to be looked at and decide for yourself what it says about the Clinton's ability to lead. I smell a lot of smoke coming from the Clinton Camp in Pennsylvania and you know the old saying about "Where there is smoke..."? You had better stand up to them now, while you truly have a say in this election as to who is the person you can ENTRUST YOUR COUNTRY'S LEADERSHIP TO.

    Obama and his accountant general's reckons the every pennyworth, penny-wise, and scaped and saved on the price tag on Clinton will set an arbitrary price on Clinton's dog-cheap Clinton and Annie Oakley twofer are. God forbid Obama is not a tightwad, penney pincher, and muckworm that is why Obama is out spending Clinton.

    For a guy who has Hillary, Bill, Chelsea, and McCain campaigning against him along with the media attacking his pastor and wife with 10 second sound-bites, Obama is doing incredibly well in this campaign.
    I'm so surprised how softball the media has been on Hillary. So far they only briefly mention her over exaggeration of her foreign experience or how she neglects to pay the bills, so far not a single word on the 20+ scandals she had to go to court over.

    Obama may not be the toughest candidate but I can bet cha he'd be the most honest one. Just look at the honesty he portrayed during the Wright fiasco by admitting that Yes, Wright is his pastor and yes he's been attending that church for 20 years. Heck we can't even get an honest yes or no answer out of Hillary on NAFTA, an item that her husband created and who is in this race pretty much to run for a third term!

    How many times has she promised to release them in just "one more week" or "two more weeks?" Maybe there wasn't enough White-Out. I hope people are noticing that her actions are failing to live up to her words.

    I think Billary is waiting to see what happens on April 22/08 and if she does not win Penn. or if she only wins by 5-6 % she will drop out and then she wii not have to show her taxes. Oh yes and this morning I heard her say "My Whitehouse" "HILLARY IT IS NOT YOUR WHITEHOUSE ,IT IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'S WHITEHOUSE " YOU WILL NOT BE IN IT , THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT A DISHONEST PRESIDENT IN THE WHITEHOUSE ANYMORE..

    OBAMA FOR SURE 08/
