McCain gets $22 million in June

posted at 2:52 pm on July 10, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

John McCain increased his fundraising in June, raising one million dollars more than in May in hitting $22 million.  Given the normally slower summer cycle and the supposed disorganization in his campaign, this comes as welcome news:

Republican presidential candidate John McCain raised $22 million for his White House bid in June and had nearly $27 million in the bank at the end of the month, campaign manager Rick Davis said on Thursday.

That fund-raising figure is a slight increase from May, when McCain raised $21 million and reported nearly $36 million in the bank.

Along with the success that the RNC has had, the McCain campaign looks to have solid financial footing for the rest of the general election campaign. They can work together to build GOTV efforts and do summer advertising in key battleground states while the DNC struggles to pay for its convention.

Barack Obama has yet to announce his June numbers.  Since peaking in February, his numbers have declined 20% or more each successive month, and in May trailed McCain slightly in fundraising.  If he drops below his May numbers in June, he may have seriously miscalculated the decision to eschew public financing.

And that would be tragic.

That would be so sweet! He’s getting to the point where he might have to throw himself under the bus.

I have heard that as long as he hasn’t violated any of the spending limits Obama can reverse his decision to skip public financing? Is this true?

Which may send him a signal about his lurch right. You know they have to be sweating that effect on fundraising. How long will he wait before he compensates? Another month to make sure or immediately?

Don’t be surprised if Obama outraises by a bit. I hope he doesn’t, but don’t set yourself up for disappointment. This was the first month after securing the nomination and, though he’s been pissing off his money-wielding base as of late, he’s held multi-million fundraisers.

amerpundit on July 10, 2008 at 3:01 PM

June and July could be slow months for Obama because the excitement of the primary is over, people have had enough of politics for now or they are on vacation. And Hillary’s supporters aren’t exactly flocking to Obama (since he’s not much help with her debt).

But if Obama dips in June and July, the halo, which was getting pretty tarnished already with flipflops and presidential seals, could get worse. Once the magic is gone he’s “just another politician.”

Wethal on July 10, 2008 at 3:11 PM

Not in love with McCain, but we simply cannot afford Barack Obama.

And from a pure comparison of their careers, it is laughable that Obama’s experience is even compared to that of McCain.

It will be a sad, cruel joke if this country selects the former over the latter.

I urge people who don’t like McCain and see an even worse outcome from a President Obama to pledge a hundred dollars to the McCain campaign and then send a check of ten dollars as “the first installment,” conditional to his backing off on his completely wrong for America support of illegal aliens who have successfully broken our nations laws by entering and staying illegally.

If and when McCain changes his mind on this, then you can send in the balance of $90.

This is one way to send him a message. If a few hundred thousand conservatives did this, he might get the hint.

But I’ll probably donate at some point…

NTWR on July 10, 2008 at 3:13 PM

Donating to McCain does give one pause, after all the pokes in the eye he’s given conservatives.

But the next president will most likely replace Stevens, Ginsberg, and maybe Souter on the Supreme Court. It could be youngish, healthy liberals, and the continuation of the Constitution According to Anthony Kennedy. Or it could be more Robertses and Alitos.

KarmiCommunist on July 10, 2008 at 3:23 PM

I really think if McCain & the Repubs stress improving the economy and fixing gas prices they’ll win.
Congress’ approval rating is in the toliet. Hammer the fact that since Pelosi took over, the economy (which took war and natural disaster in stride) has slowed down to a crawl and Republicans could gain this year.

Well, at least you tried. I don’t understand the republicans who voted for McCain over those two. Fred would have been a outstanding conservative voice and Mitt was very electable and a good choice to go up against Obama(in my opinion.)

It’s a long 4 months to go. There’s always time to give when the election is a month away, and TV ads would do a good job.

wise_man on July 10, 2008 at 3:24 PM

Looking at the archive, Obama turned down public financing on 6/19. He had to have some idea where his June numbers were heading before he made the decision. I would expect his June contributions to be significantly higher than McCain’s.

rw on July 10, 2008 at 3:26 PM

I would expect his June contributions to be significantly higher than McCain’s.

rw on July 10, 2008 at 3:26 PM

I’d say higher, but not significantly. June’s when he made the official announcement, but that was already a confirmation of what he had been alluding to in previous months. He was planning to opt-out when his numbers were coming in lower than previous months.

amerpundit on July 10, 2008 at 3:28 PM

McCain’s “in the bank” number declined by $9 million in June, meaning that he SPENT $31 million. But if he still has $27 million left, he can spend faster than that through July and August (assuming he can still pull in $20 million per month), then use the $85 million in Federal money starting in September. Now if only he can spend it WISELY!

I look forward to lots of Barack Before and Barack After ads, and let’s talk energy and taxes! Time for the Big Mac Attack!

If Obama has another anemic month in June after his May numbers, he might regret turning down a free $85 million from the government, if he can only raise $50 million or so during the last two months…

That’s not even counting the Vets for Freedom and RNC ads. I live in PA and I count at least 2 pro-McCain ads for every pro-Obama ad. This morning I started seeing a bunch AFL-CIO pro-Obama ads, so I’m sure that gap is going to start closing. I have to say, though, Obama’s ads are a LOT better/snazzier/attention grabbing/on message. McCain should nix the POW stuff and go all out with the energy ads. Obama’s already running what seems to be a response to the RNC energy ad that’s been running every two minutes. McCain needs to be on top of this. He doesn’t have a consistent message and it shows.

Wethal on July 10, 2008 at 4:10 PM

Obama may have decided to eschew public financing because he thought he would get a bonanza from Hillary’s big donors. So far it’s been a trickle. If he can’t shake more money loose from that tree he may be in some trouble. He’s got a ginormous payroll and is spending more money faster than any candidate in history.

I’ve been waiting with baited breath ever since Obama declined public financing — and his cred with the MSM started slip sliding away. Given the hype, anything less than a $100 mil. will make my day. It would be pretty ironic if they were to post Obama’s numbers on a Friday evening, wouldn’t it?

Their problems must be imaginary too. Maybe if I cue up some John Lennon, someone will spend some money and I can pay my bills. And I will contribute something to McCain’s campaign; 2 things: jack and sh*t. I told the GOP after the attempted amnesty screwing that they won’t see a dime out of me until John McCAin and Lindsey Grahamnesty are out of office. So whizz-man, since you’re so dedicated to the cause, you can put a few shekels in for me, ok?

I don’t think Backdoor John needs any cash from me. La Raza must have floated a big pot of cash for him to hire Juan Hernandez, even after he took a bath on the amnesty bill. Let him draw money from that. Call it contributions from future voters. I’m sure some greasebag lawyer will say it’s legal too.

austinnelly on July 10, 2008 at 11:57 PM

I got 2 survey letters this week from the Repubs in DC. Not sure which one came to my home and which one was sent to my business address. BOTH were filled out and sent back with zero dollars and the handwritten message in the section asking for my credit card data, that UNTIL they quit supporting RINOS for re-election, I will contribute myself directly to real conservatives running on the Republican ticket. I followed that up this month so far and have contributed to the R running against McDermot, Murtha, and Kerry. I also sent some money to a vet on the ballot in NC I think. I live in a very safe conervative district in Western MI, so my local candidate doesn’t need my money. I want to spend it where it might make a difference.

One sure winner for a McCain victory this fall will be to run against the idea of Obama’s plan for socialized health care for all “Americans”. The 47 million that Obama includes in that number include 12 million plus who are illegal aliens.

We need some 527s to pop up and run those ads asking people if they want to stand in line BEHIND the illegal aliens in their community before they can get medical care.

By the way, Michigan could possibly go purple, and maybe red this election cycle. Both candidates are running ads, all the time on all the channels.
