obama-hillary.jpg ...with 100,000 total contributors, 50,000 of which came from online. This means that Sen. Obama is drawing much more grassroots support, something the nominee is surely going to need. That Obama was able to best the massive Hillary fundraising machine speaks wonders.

ABC News:

ABC News has learned that the $23.5 million Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., raised for his presidential campaign for use in the primaries is more than that raised by the Democratic frontrunner, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.

Of the $26 million Clinton has raised in the first quarter of 2007 for her presidential campaign, approximately $20 million is for use in the primaries and caucuses, sources tell ABC News.

Clinton campaign officials cautioned that its campaign was still ascertaining how much of its $26 million raised is available for primary use.
Sources told ABC News that while that is accurate, roughly $20 million is designated for the primary — it could be slightly less or slightly more. Either way Obama raised more primary cash than Clinton.
