Clinton’s operation raised more than million in the third quarter after a grueling fundraising schedule, compared with about $26 million for the Vermonter – who raised his money largely from online donations, and few in-person fundraising events. In July, the former Burlington, Vermont mayor managed to draw a crowd of more than 10,000 supporters to a campaign event at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Madison, Wisconsin, CBS News recalled.
“First of all, Hillary Clinton, the great tolerant one with rainbow Twitter avatars granting open-mindedness to any family formation under the sun, seems a bit more traditional in private than she does in public“, Palin wrote. Her next fundraising report will show how she fared during the typical summer lull and give insiders a look into how efficiently her campaign is running.
Sanders has raised the bulk of his funds online, with an active Internet presence aimed at recruiting smaller givers. Clinton’s campaign has not released details on her total number of donors. For Clinton, that figure was 17 percent; for Bush, 3 percent, the least of any candidate. Sanders has not run a single TVcommercial.

Bennett said the campaign initiated plans Wednesday to begin reserving television ad space across the South for primary contests scheduled for early March.
Clinton also said the department needed to move quickly, or else they would have to endure sharp attacks from none other than Sarah Palin.
“We have a chance to send an unmistakable message about the size and strength of our campaign”, Sanders tweeted, urging supports to donate. He called his campaign a “political revolution”.
Clinton read the article, and quickly fired off an email to her top aides to complain.
In the wake of Obama’s successes, thousands of campaigns on all ballot levels-as well as the super-PACs supporting them-are making sure to tend their digital donation gardens.
In all, Sanders has raised about $41 million this year. The full Democratic field will appear at the Iowa Democratic Party’s annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner, which was a turning point for Barack Obama in his upstart bid against Clinton in the fall of 2007.
Only twoRepublican contender havereleased fundraising totals so far. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a Republican who has never held elective office, brought in $20 million from more than 350,000 donors.
