Looks like a big money haul for Barack Obama in August with the campaign reporting $66 million and 500,000 new donors. That brings their total number of donors to around 2.5 million which is a staggering total. All told, he has $77 million cash on hand. That’s a lot of money and, I think, assures us that the Obama campaign will be able to meet its goal of outclassing McCain’s ground operation.
That said, when pondering Obama’s fundraising feats, it is worth recalling that there’s nothing stopping Sheldon Adelson from giving “Freedom’s Watch” $60 million or, for that matter, $600 million if he decides that swamping the airwaves with conservative messaging is really important to him.
