The $6 Million Woman
Our politics reporter Holly Yeager (who is inside a ballroom at CPAC) just shot me a message from her Blackberry with news from Clinton’s campaign. Yesterday Holly noted Clinton loaned herself $5 million presumably to stay out of the red, but today the campaign’s looking much more flush according to an email from Clinton’s camp:
You exceeded our $3 million goal in less than 24 hours. In fact, we’ve already hit FOUR MILLION DOLLARS! Incredible! And so far, more than 35,000 people — 35,000! — have made online contributions.
Your response has been so amazing that we are doubling our goal: $6 million in 72 hours.
So is her campaign rolling in it? Or are we being spun?
