On MSNBC, Clinton’s national chair Terry McCauliffe just announced that we’ve raised $10 million in cash since last night’s history-making election in Pennsylvania. There were 50,000+ donors. More cash is pouring in. She’ll need every penny we can spare because Obama, unbelievably (?), has endless cash flow. (Of course, he outspent her three-to-one in Pennsylvania, and still couldn’t win, or even come close.)
ALSO BREAKING: Hillary has snagged an important Tennessee superdelegate. “Rep. John Tanner, a prominent Blue Dog Democrat, backs [Hillary].”
UPDATE: Vet4Hill has created a terrific new video on Hillary’s lead in the popular vote … it’s just below the fold:
Special thanks to Claude for the tip on the MSNBC interview. Claude also reports that McCauliffe had to put up with questions from Andrea Mitchell, but he knows how to handle her and those kinds of questions.
And, here’s the official Clinton press release on John Tanner’s pledge:
Congressman John Tanner Endorses Hillary Clinton for President
On the heels of a strong victory in Pennsylvania, Congressman John Tanner today announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President. Tanner represents Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District.
“I do not remember a time when our nation has faced the financial peril that confronts all Americans,” Congressman Tanner said. “To me, this election is not about politics as usual. I believe nothing less than our financial liberty and economic freedom are at stake.
“In my opinion, the best person to lead this critical effort is Hillary Clinton. Hillary is a smart, pragmatic leader who understands the grave situation our country faces, with a $9 trillion debt, much of which is borrowed from foreign countries. Now, more than ever, our nation needs a leader like Sen. Clinton who can work with others to return to fiscal sanity.”
Congressman John Tanner has represented Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District since 1989. As a co-founder of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition, Tanner is considered to be one of the leading voices in Congress for restoring fiscal responsibility to our nation’s government. Tanner serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He also chairs the U.S. delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. Tanner and his wife, Betty Ann, reside in Union City, Tennessee.
“I am honored to have the support of Congressman John Tanner,” said Hillary Clinton. “As co-founder of the Blue Dog Coalition, John has spent his career in Congress fighting to eliminate our national debt and restore fiscal soundness to our nation’s government. John is known as a common sense, results-oriented leader, and I look forward to having him join me in spreading my message of change and experience across America.”
