Hillary Clinton Raises Record $45 Million in First Quarter of Campaign

Clinton attended dozens of high-dollar fundraisers, though 91% of the donations came from people who gave $100 or less.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign raised at least $45 million during its first quarter, her campaign told Bloomberg on Wednesday.

Clinton's haul from her campaign's launch in mid-April through June 30 is a record for primary money raised in a candidate's first quarter. President Barack Obama held the previous record for a campaign's first quarter, raising $41.9 million after launching his re-election bid.

The Democratic frontrunner appeared dozens of high-dollar fundraisers–many in New York, several in California, plus a smattering smaller cities like St. Louis, Austin and Albuquerque–where attendees were often asked to give the primary-season maximum $2,700 or to raise at least $27,000.

The campaign, though, is emphasizing a number that it sees a sign of grassroots support: 91 percent of the donations were of $100 or less. In a handwritten note posted on Twitter just after the campaign announced the top-line numbers, Clinton expressed her appreciation. "Thank you so much for being part of this campaign. I’m grateful for all you’ve done and excited for what comes next," she wrote. "When the road ahead is tough, you need the best people by your side. That’s why I’m thankful for you."

Newest PPP poll out today has Hillary gaining momentum on all Dem candidates.


Bernie Sanders may be gaining momentum in recent New Hampshire polling but Hillary Clinton is more dominant than ever in the national polling. She's at 65% to 9% for Bernie Sanders, 5% for Martin O'Malley, and 4% each for Lincoln Chafee and Jim Webb. Sanders is the most common second choice of Democratic voters at 19% and O'Malley has broken away from Chafee and Webb to become the clear third choice of primary voters at 12%. Overall Clinton is the first or second choice of 73% of Democrats to 28% for Sanders, 17% for O'Malley, 8% for Chafee, and 7% for Webb.

Clinton continues to be dominant nationally with every segment of the Democratic electorate- she's over 60% with liberals, moderates, women, men, Hispanics, whites, and voters in every age group and she's polling at 83% with African Americans. The lack of racial diversity in New Hampshire is one reason Sanders is coming closer to her there given her dominance with black voters nationally.

Hillary's economic adviser is Joseph Stiglitz?

Whoa if true. And her other economic adviser is a Wall Street watchdog. Great choices.


Stiglitz is advising Clinton on economic policy, and her aides have met repeatedly with Roosevelt Institute scholars and staff, including at least one session since the release of the report, according to a person familiar with the discussions. 

From the article: Hillary's FDR Moment

I’m a liberal professor, and I’m NOT afraid of students who question me.

Edward Schlosser says, “I’m a liberal professor, and my liberal students terrify me”. Strangely, he doesn’t give any evidence that he’s at all liberal, and the one personal incident he cites involves a conservative student.

The next week, I got called into my director’s office. I was shown an email, sender name redacted, alleging that I “possessed communistical [sic] sympathies and refused to tell more than one side of the story.” The story in question wasn’t described, but I suspect it had do to with whether or not the economic collapse was caused by poor black people.

That was it. That was the first, and so far only, formal complaint a student has ever filed against me, he says. Further, this was the response of the administration:

My director rolled her eyes. She knew the complaint was silly bullshit. I wrote up a short description of the past week’s class work, noting that we had looked at several examples of effective writing in various media and that I always made a good faith effort to include conservative narratives along with the liberal ones.

Along with a carbon-copy form, my description was placed into a file that may or may not have existed. Then … nothing. It disappeared forever; no one cared about it beyond their contractual duties to document student concerns. I never heard another word of it again.

So then he scurries off to Vox and writes a long essay in which he complains that he’s terrified by liberal students. This makes no sense at all. There has to be more to his concerns than this. He makes a few vague efforts...

Hillary will announce June 13th from Roosevelt Island NYC.

This is where she will announce, with the UN and Freedom Tower in the background:
