In case you're counting

Posted By on Tue, Aug 21, 2007 at 12:18 PM

I had written this for the print edition, but it's not going to stay in the bag. Hillary Clinton raised $650,000 in Arkansas yesterday for her presidential campaign, Arkansas spokesman Robert McLarty said. That makes a total of almost $800,000 for the year from her former home state. By way of comparison, she raised more in one day than Mike Huckabee raised in the first six months of the year, about $550,000.

Crowds ranged from 200 to 300 at each of the three money events. At the final, a soiree at the Italianate Edgehill villla of interior designer Kaki Hockersmith and Max Mehlburger, 90 to 100 of the guests gave the max $2,300.
