From the Boston Globe
After relentless fund-raising in his late-entry presidential campaign, retired Army general Wesley K. Clark raised between $10.4 million and $11.1 million in the final quarter of 2003 and will be eligible for up to $6 million in federal matching funds, aides said, making him competitive with other well-financed candidates in the final primary push.
A couple interesting observations.
First, they lump in his estimated $6 million in matching funds to arrive at at $20 million total. I recall a discussion about this earlier in the week. At least the Globe is going to see it all as funds raised.
Second, $6 million matching funds means somewhere around 24,000 donors, right? Well, not exactly, because he could have a lot of $100 donors. But definitely in the 2-digit range of donors.
Third, aides say they expect to raise another $4 million in January.
Finally, he's apparently spent more than half of it already:
Clark aides said he will probably have between $4 million and $5 million on hand at the start of the year, and the $6 million in matching funds would be more than any other candidate adhering to spending limits.
Makes me curious about all of the campaigns' cash on hand numbers.
