From the e-mailbag:
Yeah . . . but then there’s this from U.S. News:
It’s official: for the first time in history, a political candidate has raised $1 billion in one campaign. President Barack Obama and his Democratic affiliates have raised $1.03 billion this cycle with Romney and his Republican affiliates not far behind, according to U.S. News analysis of the final pre-Election Day fundraising filings from Thursday night.
The filings — which go through Oct. 17 — show Mitt Romney pulled in $112.4 million in the first half of October, slightly more than the billion dollar man himself, who raised $110.7 million. Team Romney has raised $961 million so far this cycle, and will likely cross the $1 billion threshold in the campaign’s remaining two weeks.
So, to recap: The billion-dollar Romney steamroller is whining about the billion-dollar Obama juggernaut.
Ain’t politics grand?
