Democratic presidential hopefuls have outperformed their GOP rivals at raising primary cash for the first time since 1976. In the first quarter the score was $79 mil to $51 mil, which seems portentous: Bob Dole's campaign manager confesses to the Times that the Dems "seem to have a lot more hunger for the White House right now than we do."
Barack Obama's campaign manager admits it's not likely that the Republicans will run out of cash, but suggests they will have to "work harder for it." Obama and rival Hillary Clinton raised a collective $50 million from contributors. Meanwhile, John McCain is far behind the leading Democrats in fundraising, even trailing John Edwards's $14 million.
