Show Me the Money

I wanted to share this website - Fund Race - where you can search by name, zip code, occupation and employer to see who has given what in the current Presidential election.

In what is shaping up to be the most expensive Presidential campaign in history, each Democratic candidate has raised over $100 million during the primary season. The Obama campaign raised $32 million in January compared to $13.5 million for the Clinton campaign. Since the February 5th Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, Senator Obama has raised $7.5 million and has swept the primaries and caucuses in Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington, the Virgin Islands and Maine.

Tomorrow is the Potomac Primaries, where voters in Maryland, DC and Virginia head to the polls. 237 total delegates are at stake. The candidates are in a near dead-heat, with Obama leading in delegates pledged through the primary process and Clinton leading in Superdelegates.

I think the New York Times Election Guide has the easiest snapshot of the primaries.

Ok citizens of Maryland, DC and Virginia - your time has come. Let your voices be heard!
