But hey, millionaires are people, too:
Sen. Barack Obama reversed a three-month fundraising slide by raising $52 million in June…
Obama’s campaign would not say how much of his total was raised from small donors who gave online, and official reports are not due to be filed until Sunday. But an examination of his campaign schedule — which has been packed with high-dollar fundraising events — would suggest that he relied less on Internet donors than he did in February, when he took in $55.4 million.
That month, he raised $30 million in donations of less than $200. Donors contributing similar amounts gave $23.5 million in March, $19.3 million in April and $13.3 million in May, Federal Election Commission records show.
The shift has been noticed by top Obama fundraisers, who have been busily planning the kind of big-money events the candidate was able to bypass in the heat of the primary campaign. Several said in interviews that the campaign is no longer seeing the kind of online bonanza that occurred during Obama’s long battle with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton… [Emphasis added.]
Yes, while Clinton was raking in votes Obama was raking in Creative Class dollars online. What a shame for him that middle-class voters can vote while dollars can’t.
