Obama's Fundraising Efforts Rival Clinton's

In the first quarter of the campaign, Senator Obama has raised almost as much money as Senator Clinton, 25 to 26 million dollars. Obama was the last to disclose his figures for the first quarter and has stated that $23.5 million is for the primary season. 100,000 people have donated, with many making contributions of $25.

The campaign exceeded the fundraising goals it set when it entered the campaign, as more people have come to the events than expected and low-dollar contributions have poured in online. Obama raised most of his money using the Internet, which does not directly translate to success, as Howard Dean showed in 2004.
