Obama campaign outraises Clinton’s by wide margin

INDIANAPOLIS – Barack Obama’s campaign raised nearly twice as much money from Indiana residents as Hillary Rodham Clinton did in the weeks leading up to the state’s hotly contested Democratic primary.\nFederal Election Commission reports released Wednesday show that Obama collected about $220,000 in Indiana during April, while Clinton raised about $111,000.\nResidents have given Obama about $1.1 million overall, with Clinton raising about $775,000.\nThose totals are just a fraction of the estimated $8 million-plus that the campaigns spent on Indiana TV ads alone before the May 6 primary, which Clinton narrowly won.\nThe FEC records show that Republican John McCain raised about $68,000 last month in Indiana, for a total of $451,500.
