Obama Fundraising Totals Doubles That Of McCain
Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama, cleaned up in fundraising during the month of June 2008, bringing in $52 million dollars. His totals for the month double that of his rival, Republican presidential candidate, John McCain. Large portions of the candidates’ money will no doubt be spent on advertising.
John McCain: little boy, do you have any money.
One thing I noticed, McCain has covered all his bases in spending money for ads on TV and the internet. However, Obama has not really spent money advertising online.
I haven’t seen Obama’s ads on any of the blogs, which cumulatively reach tens of millions of people per month, while McCain’s ads are dominating in this arena, especially Google.
Obama announces big June haul

Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign has $72 million available to spend, campaign officials say.
