The latest fund-raising figures in the US Presidential campaign, have been eagerly awaited. They can be crucial in indicating who is in the lead and who is faltering.
Barack Obama has raised $32.5 million between April and June. This is well ahead of Clinton's $27 million. This is a very significant achievement for Obama. The Clintons are no slouches when it comes to raising funds.
Interestingly, the Obama money is coming significantly from internet donations and the "grass roots", whereas, according to The Times, the Clinton money is coming largely from "mining the list of established donors who backed her husband."
