Hillary Spending Millions in N.Y.

Hillary Spending Millions in N.Y.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a huge war chest, and she's definitely using it.

According to the Hill newspaper, Clinton, D-N.Y., spent nearly $7 million from her Senate campaign account last month running for re-election in New York.

The figure ranks among the most ever spent by a Senate candidate in such a short period, and many New Yorkers cannot even name her opponent.

Clinton’s onslaught is drawing comparisons to George W. Bush’s 1998 gubernatorial race in Texas, when he outspent his opponent 4-to-1 and used his big victory as a springboard to the presidency.
According to the Hill, Clinton’s campaign spent $10.1 million in the third quarter, more than any other Senate candidate. Most of the sum, which included a $1 million contribution to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, has paid for direct mail, phone banks, cable advertising, and the organization of an ambitious get-out-the-vote program, according to a Clinton aide.

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, by contrast, who is running for re-election in California, the nation’s largest state, spent only $1.36 million during the same period, even though polls show she is in a closer race than Clinton. Clinton is leading her opponent, John Spencer, by an average of 32 points in recent polls.

"We have been throughout this campaign building a get-out-the-vote operation that we think is going to work for Democratic candidates throughout the state,” Ann Lewis, Clinton’s campaign spokeswoman, told the Hill. "We have several congressional seats that could be in play in New York. The voter turnout we can generate is good news for everyone.”

Michael Toner, chairman of the Federal Election Commission, told the Hill: "It appears that Sen. Clinton’s spending in the last quarter ranks in the top 10 for senate candidates all time. There’s been a handful of candidates that have spent more money in a single quarter.”

How much of that money is coming from Jews, I wonder?  :'(
The city isn't what it used to be. It all happened so fast. Everything went to crap. It's like... everyone's sense of morals just disappeared. Bad economy made things worse. Jobs started drying up, then the stores had to shut down. Then a black man was elected president. He was supposed to change things. He didn't. More and more people turned to crime and violence... The town becomes gripped with fear. Dark times, dark times... I am the hero this town needs. I am... The Coon!!!
