NEW: Clinton Outraises Sanders in Oregon By Nearly $40,000

Thursday, October 01, 2015

 

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton, the front-runner in the Democratic Presidential Primary, out-fundraised challenger Bernie Sanders in Oregon, banking $120,652 in the State, while Sanders raised just $81,316. 

Sanders filled his piggy-bank with low-sum donations from hundreds of donors in the state of Oregon. More than 475 Oregonians donated to this campaign, giving an average of roughly $170 per contribution, according to records released yesterday by the Federal Elections Commission. 

Clinton relied on fewer donors with deeper pockets for her funds. She received donations from more than 330 contributors, who on average gave $358 to her campaign. She received a total of 120 maximum donations of $2,700, while Sanders received only one such donation.

Clinton’s fundraising lead in surprising given the recent history of the two campaigns in the Beaver State. Sanders held a massive campaign rally at the Moda Center in Portland, speaking to more than 28,000 excited fans.

Clinton, by comparison, held only a private fundraiser for wealthy contributors at the home of Democratic-donor Win McCormack and political consultant Carol Butler. Only 140 people attended the event, which cost $2,700 per person.

Clinton Leads Nationally

Across the board, Clinton is still out-fundraising Sanders, but by a thinner margin than ever before. Clinton reported raising roughly $28 million as of the last filing deadline, while Sanders raised $26 million.

Sanders may be building momentum nationally as the first primaries near. Along with closing the fundraising gap, he has overtaken Clinton in polls of Democratic voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, and the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll has him only seven points behind Clinton.

Many Sanders enthusiasts who were present at the rally had choice words about Hillary.  “Democrats are forming another branch – a smarter branch. Hillary represents the corporate democrat. I believe in the social democrat and so does my grandma who is 87,” said Brett Bottorff.
