I Underestimated

December 04, 2008

In my Wall Street Journal column this week, I underestimated the amount that President-Elect Obama raised in October and November. I thought the reports would show he raised $120 to $140 million more since the last numbers we got.

It was $216 million.

In the general election, Obama spent almost $896 million while McCain barely broke $554 million. Obama's general election spending advantage was $340 million.
