After the Obama campaign filed its January report with the Federal Election Commission, we're getting some additional details on Obama's haul for last month.
First, the campaign itself raised $11.9 million, while the DNC and Obama Victory Fund made up the rest to get to today's earlier reported figure of $29.1 million.
That $11.9 million is far LESS than what Team Obama raised in January of 2008 (nearly $37 million). But in fairness, he was competing in a heavily competitive primary with Hillary Clinton back then. Now? He's just watching on the GOP race on the sidelines.
Perhaps more importantly, the Obama campaign has nearly $76 million cash on hand as of Jan. 31.
As an Obama campaign official tells First Read: "We're putting this money in the bank, and not in a competitive primary. The Republicans are spending whatever there raise."
We've yet to see numbers for the remaining GOP candidates.
