Another fundraising record for Obama, meaning he can afford to finish strong:
With the presidential campaign approaching its final stretch, Barack Obama finds himself in an enviable position.
One official close to the campaign said that September’s fundraising haul set a new record, surpassing the $66 million Obama raised in August. Another aide, asked about the campaign’s take, would only describe it: “big.”
It looks like we are going to fall a little short of 60k from this site alone, but still a good chuck of change. Well done.
Second, it looks like we might be in for a market rally. I have no idea what that means in the long term, and I would trade stability for a short term radical spike in the short term. Again, I don’t know how much the market represents reality. Are they reacting to the action by all the global government responses only and will this just be a nother short-term blip?
