They were aiming to raise seven million in seven days: even with taking a couple of days off from fundraising because of Hurricane Sandy they did it in five. They’re now trying to get another two million by the end of t0night: the running total is 8.67 million, but it will probably be higher by the time you read this. It might, in fact, be higher by the time I hit the publish button.
PS: Why aren’t you hearing about Obama’s fundraising prowess, this last week? Mostly because his campaign’s final fundraising emails read like a drunk trying to finagle one last sawbuck for a fifth of cheap scotch. I’m getting the feeling that the pipes are dry.
