As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Clinton Fundraising May be Lagging

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is warning that it is struggling to reach its August targets and may be outraised by Donald Trump, according to a report today in the Washington Examiner.

“With just three days left until our biggest fundraising deadline yet, we’re in danger of being out-raised by the Trump campaign for the first time in this election,” Clinton wrote in an email to supporters Sunday night. “That’s why we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $10 million online during this final week.”

Her campaign manager said in an email the next day that August is shaping up poorly.

“I’ll be straight with you, August isn’t shaping up to be our best month in terms of fundraising,” Robby Mook wrote.

“We’re still lagging behind where we were in July, and the timing isn’t ideal,” he wrote. “The first ballots will be cast in a matter of weeks, so we need to have a comprehensive, well-staffed and well-funded ground game to make sure that they’re cast for Hillary.”

Well, no doubt some of this is just a way to get people to empty their pockets. A lot of times these emails are followed by something after the end-of-month deadline saying, “Surprise, surprise, we met and exceeded our targets!”

But there must be a kernel of truth. I think. Because this isn’t Obama. There’s no magic there. It’s just same old corrupt Hillary, and even Democrats must need a kick in the pants to get off their wallets.

  1. Cynical poor mouthing by a campaign awash in cash. Hillary had multiple events yesterday; $3million at one and $6million raised at another. Articles already show Hillary is gaming the rules (shocker!) to wash maxxed-out donor funds via state organizations to allow big donors to circumvent limits at the DNC level.

    She flew a private twin-engine jet 20 miles from Martha’s Vineyard to Nantucket for a fundraiser. That is a $8k trip right there to fire up the engines..

    Like her being “Dead Broke” leaving the White House, her poor-mouthing here should be questioned and ridiculed.

    • That’s why the Country is in debt and the inner cities are in ruin.

      They don’t want to put this Country back on fiscal footing.
      They want to keep the people dependent on the government.
      That is the only way that they can retain their power over us.
