Clinton out-raised but still sits atop largest war chest
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, has raised less money so far in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination than her chief opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, but she still sits atop the largest cash reserves of any White House hopeful, according to campaign finance reports filed Sunday.
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton had the largest war chest after the first quarter of 2007, but Sen. Barack Obama raised more for the primary season.
Clinton raised $19 million from contributors in the first three months of the year specifically for her nomination bid, compared to $24.8 million for Obama, according to the reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Overall, the New York senator actually brought in a record amount for this point in a presidential race, $36 million.
