MoveOn Moves More Cash
MoveOn.org continues to generate press for itself over its ability to bundle contributions to targeted campaigns. The latest example comes courtesy of the Charleston (WV) Gazette:
Early Tuesday afternoon, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., sent an appeal over the Internet urging people to contribute to the re-election campaign of Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va.
In less than 24 hours, more than 15,000 contributors gave $634,000 to Byrd’s campaign, according to the National Journal’s daily Internet publication “Hotline.” The average donation was about $42.25.
