Clinton Outraises Sanders 12 to 1 in Oregon

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

 

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

The Bernie and Hillary show has been on stage in Portland for the past week, but make no mistake about it, while Sanders gets the crowd, Clinton is taking home the money.

Last week, the two campaigns could not have been in greater contrast. Clinton came to town for a high-priced fundraiser at $2,700 a head.  Sanders on Sunday produced the biggest crowd of any of the Presidential candidates this election cycle with 28,000 in attendance at the Moda Center.

Clinton: 12 to 1

A GoLocal review of the second quarter donations to the Clinton and Sanders campaigns shows that Clinton’s "Hillary for America" campaign collected $118,418.86 for the quarter in Oregon - these numbers do not include July or the August events.

In contrast, Sanders’ "Bernie 2016" campaign raised in the second quarter in Oregon just $9,599.47, thus giving Clinton a greater than 12 to 1 advantage.

Sanders’ slow fundraising in Oregon is not true in every state. In Massachusetts, he has raised more than $2.7 million.


Who is for campaign finance reform?

 

Both candidates talk about the need for campaign finance reform and the adverse impact of millionaire and billionaire donors. Both Sanders and Clinton proposes a Constitutional amendment for campaign finance reform.

“We need to undo the Supreme Court’s damage in Citizens United and stop the endless flow of secret, unaccountable money that is distorting our elections, corrupting our political process, and drowning out the voices of everyday Americans—even if it takes a Constitutional amendment,” says Clinton’s campaign.

Both campaigns demonize the influence and donations of Republican supporters like the Koch Brothers, but make no mention of Democratic billionaire donors like billionaire financier George Soros who given massive amounts to Democratic candidates.

Similarly, Sanders blasts the influence of billionaires on the political process, “Our democracy is under fierce attack. Billionaire families are now able to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to buy the candidates of their choice. These people own most of the economy. Now they want to own our government as well.” 

Clinton continues to raise large donations from wealthy contributors in her growing fundraising advantage.  As GoLocalPDX reported last month:

Big Donors for Clinton and Small Donations Fuel Sanders

No data shows the difference between the Clinton and Sanders campaigns more so than who is attracting big gifts. GoLocalPDX looks at the campaign data  -- specifically those donations over $2,700 versus which candidate is attracting relatively small gifts.

For donations $200 to $499 

Clinton: $1,533,686
Sanders: $779,974

For donations $2,700 and above

Clinton: $30,609,880
Sanders: $442,181

To put in perspective, Clinton has only out raised Sanders 2-to-1 among gifts under $500, but out raised Sanders in gifts of $2,700 and more 70-to-1.

For donations under $200, Sanders leads all candidates - Democrats and Republicans - with 76% of his donations under $200.  Clinton has only received 17% of her donations under $200.

Big Picture - Clinton Holds Better than 3-1 lead

Overall through the second quarter, Hilary Clinton’s campaign has raised more than $47,053,724 to Sanders’ $15,114,622 through the June 30 reporting deadline.
