Yes, Clinton Raised $10M Off The Net

More

Peter Daou, Hillary Clinton's internet director, confirms that, by midnight last night, the campaign had recieved more than $10 million in web-based contributions. efforts. Not pledges. Not promises. But $10 million transferred directly from the credit and debit cards of about 100,000 donors. (The average donation was about $100 -- which means that the campaign steered some bigger donors to the net.)

On television yesterday, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAullife innoncently projected out the number of $10 million from the roughly $5m the campaign had already recieved. There was a little bit of panic in Clinton land -- would they actually be able to reach the Macker's exuberant projection?

The campaign says that by 11:00 pm ET last night, they had.

So the $10M figure, according to the Clinton campaign, is not a goal. It is, indeed, cash in the bank.
