It’s time to hit that Act Blue page!
John McCain, who was outraised by a 2-1 margin by Barack Obama during the presidential primaries, entered June with almost as much money as the presumptive Democratic nominee.
When combined with the Republican National Committee’s bank balance, McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, had more money to spend than Obama during the three months leading up to the national party conventions.
McCain, an Arizona senator, had $31.6 million as of May 31, compared with $33.3 million for Obama, Federal Election Commission records show. The RNC had $53.5 million to just under $4 million for the Democrats.
When combined with all those conservative 527 “swiftie-style” organizations, I’m going to guess the numbers are even more staggering. And you know the Republican National Committee will hit Obama hard using every underhanded, rotten tactic they can come up with (certification of birth
certificate, middle names, Obama’s black children, etc.)
It’ll be buckets and buckets of stupidity, sure, but the RNC and conservative 527s are effective that way.
Update: “A new NEWSWEEK Poll shows that he has a substantial double-digit lead, 51 percent to 36 percent, over McCain among registered voters nationwide.”
