July presidential fundraising

McCain raised $27 million and the Republican National Committee raised $26 million in July.

Obama raised $51 million and the Democratic National Committee raised $27.7 million in the same timeframe.

$78.8 million for the Democrats, and $53 million for the Republican's ... a difference of twenty five million bucks.

That means the Democrats raised 150% of what the Republicans did. That's unprecedented in Presidential politics, as usually it's the Republicans with deep pockets corporate donors shoveling out cash for their candidate, while the Democrats beg for cash from unions and complain about campaign finance reform.

How times have changed.
