Follow-up #2: 'Hillary's Texas Money Bundler'

Obama's and McCain's fund-raising efforts are running close in a key border area in and around McAllen, Texas, and area rich in Hispanic voters. 

Back on November 27, 2007, American Thinker ran an article concerning Senator Clinton's extraordinary success at raising money in and around the border town of McAllen, Texas. Correspondingly, Senator Obama's fundraising efforts were doing poorly.  Obama had, at that time, raised only $2,086 from among the heavily Hispanic population. 

By May 31, Federal Election Commission indicated that Obama has gained new contributors and had reached $96,020 in campaign donations from the same area.  But, Clinton has gained, also. Her contributions had risen to $1,033,944.

Now, eight weeks later, and with Clinton out of the race, Obama's contributions have only reached $120,998.

McCain's contributions from the same area stand at $108,507.

It seems that the lopsided fund-raising success that Clinton once enjoyed over Obama in this border region is not being experienced by Obama over McCain.

By the way, the name of Hillary's bundler in the area, Alonzo Cantu, appears on neither the Obama's nor McCain's donor list.
