Clinton Has $35 Million in Bank, Obama $32 Million
Sen. Hillary Clinton spent roughly $20 million in the third quarter in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination and had $35 million left to spend in her primary quest, aides reported last night. Her chief rival for the nomination, Sen. Barack Obama announced late Monday her has more than $32 million cash remaining for the primaries despite also spending at a rapid pace.
Counting funds that can be used for the general election, Clinton had roughly $50 million in reserve when September ended.
Much of Obama's spending appears to have been on advertising in Iowa; a report from the Nielsen Company showed he has ran more than 4,000 ads in Iowa, compared to 1,662 by Hillary Clinton and 45 by John Edwards.
