Will Obama Outraise Hillary? Her Campaign Now Predicts It

A couple days ago, Hillary said that it would mean “absolutely nothing” if Obama outraised her in the second quarter.

If we beat that, we beat expectations, while anything less than the number I mentioned would be a disappointment and a sign of serious trouble for our opponent.”
