John Edwards is far ahead of the fundraising numbers he posted during his first run for the White House.
But the former North Carolina senator is having trouble keeping
up with the breakneck pace set by his rivals this time around.
The Edwards campaign raised more than 14 million dollars in
this year's first quarter and is on pace to pocket only about 9
million dollars by midnight Saturday for the second quarter.
This quarter's cash is only one-third of what his top
competitors will raise as the 2008 money race continues to shatter
New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign says she'll
raise roughly 27 million dollars. And political insiders say
Illinois Senator Barack Obama is expected to outraise Clinton.
