1. From what I can gather, the Drudge spreadsheet is real, but I'm being cautioned against reading too much into the $27M number. If they raise in excess of $20M, call Clinton's 2nd quarter successful. The political world convinced itself that her donors were tapped out, but that's apparently not the case. And Terry McAullife is... freakin' Terry McAuliffe.
2. I'm not trying to cast doubt on the HuffPost's reporting, but all the info cited by their Obama source in the piece is public record and it's hard to come up with a good political reason for any senior Obama aide to brag about their haul tonight. Obama campaign manager David Plouffe has clamped down on the number of senior staff who have access to the fundraising tallies -- less than a half dozen, I'm told -- and very few fundraisers -- less than a handful -- have similar information.
Still -- what they report rings true -- Obama seems to be on track to outraising Clinton this quarter.
But the truth is -- we -- and they -- really won't know for a few more weeks.
