I am assigned to a few political newsletter and typically its the same old thing. Bush is bad, we need to replace bush type deal. Blah blah, blah who cares we know just wait!
BUt I got a intereseting fact concerning McCain, Clinton, and Obama, heres a quote from it
In February alone, more than 94% of our donors gave in amounts of $200 or less. Meanwhile, campaign finance reports show that donations of $200 or less make up just 13% of Senator McCain's total campaign funds, and only 26% of Senator Clinton's.What does this tell me about Obama? He ain't getting funded by large interset groups. In my eyes thats a good thing. I don't want a president who made backroom promises to get elected. I want a president who simply had millions supoort him.Meanwhile, Senator McCain has raised more than 70% of his total campaign funds from high-dollar donors giving $1,000 or more. Senator Clinton has raised 60% of her funds from $1,000-and-up donors. And both Senator McCain and Senator Clinton have accepted millions of dollars from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs.
Refusing to accept donations from lobbyists and special interests has allowed this campaign to answer only to ordinary Americans like you. And this dinner will be an opportunity for you to sit down with Barack and your fellow supporters and talk about the issues that matter in your life and in your community.
