    of you . . . she is now, with Mark Penn and herself about 9,000,000 in debt?  I saw her expenditures and debt as zero, Has she settled her accounts to date? (Kossacks as credit and collections department?)
    She has a separate war chest for the general?  Can this be used to retire nomination debt?  Where does the money go if she doesn't use it?

      Clinton March Report

      Her debts are zero; they are 10.3 million. (You may have been looking at "debts owed To the committee" i.e. to the campaign?)

      Add to that the 5 million she loaned the campaign and she's 15 million in debt as of the end of March. We'll have to wait to see her April report to find out if she chooses to retire any of that debt or if she chooses to spend the money she's raising in April on her campaign efforts (my guess).

      About $30 million of her cash on hand is earmarked for the General, if memory serves.

      Commenters have said Clinton can use general election money to retire her debts if she's not the nominee, but I don't know the ins and outs of federal election law and I don't know if that's true.

      Nebraska: Who knew it was a hotbed of activist trust-funded latte-drinking Prius-driving brainwashed caucusers? It's not just about the corn.
