Part I (the rest in the comments):
As the day ends, the latest third quarter fundraising reports are finally coming in. Hillary Clinton knows how to spend money wisely. Barack Obama knows how to waste money. On to the final quarter of the year!
CLINTON WILL SHOW APPROXIMATELY $35 MILLION TO OBAMA’S $32 MILLION, REVERSING OBAMA’S SECOND-QUARTER ADVANTAGE
More from Associated Press:
Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton ended September with more money in the bank than rival Barack Obama, holding $35 million cash on hand for the presidential primary contests to his $32 million. [snip]
Clinton, who had trailed Obama in fundraising and in money in the bank at the end of June, edged past him with an aggressive third quarter of fundraising.
Neither Obama nor Clinton had yet filed detailed reports of their third-quarter finances with the Federal Election Commission. The reports were due at 11:59 p.m. EDT Monday.
Clinton, who also has been raising money for the general election, had a total of $50 million in the bank, her campaign said Monday night. But $15 million of that cannot be used for the primaries.
Obama had a similar cash-on-hand amount at the end of June, meaning he likely spent the $20 million he has reported raising from July through September. Clinton appears to have spent less than the $22 million she raised for the primary.[snip]
Obama ramped up his advertising toward the end of third quarter. He has placed more than 4,200 spots on television, practically all of it in Iowa. Clinton has placed nearly 2,200 spots, with more than 1,600 airing in Iowa. According to Nielsen, Clinton has also placed a small number of ads in a number of other states, including New York, Tennessee, Louisiana and Arizona.
Sen. Barack Obama on Monday reported having $32 million in cash available to spend on the Democratic presidential primaries. The Illinois senator raised $20 million for the contest during the year’s third quarter, from July through September, his campaign said.
