Even more reason to believe that the Hillary campaign in flagging much more than we would be led to believe by her showing last night.

Her campaign was $5,000,000 in the whole as she personally “lent” that much money to her own campaign.  Obama has been able to nearly double the fundraising and has not had to use his own money.
