First glance at the money race...

The Associated Press is reporting that Democratic Presidential candidate Hilliary Clinton raised $26 million during the first quarter of 2007, with former Sen. John Edwards bringing in a little more than $14 million. It is reported, although not yet announced, that Illinois Sen. Barack Obama is in the $20 million to $21 million range. (He apparently is waiting a day or two to officially announce his total to get a bigger bang from the media hype).

In the second tier, according to the New York Times, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson deposited $6 million; CT Sen. Chris Dodd about $4 million and Delaware Sen. Joe Biden in the $3 million nighborhood.

Convention wisdom said you needed at least $10 million to be looked at as a serious contender.
