The Washington Post published about a month ago an article titled, “Two Clintons. 41 Years. $3 Billion.”
The article goes into some detail about how the Clinton’s have cultivated the art of soliciting money from donors and have managed to raise a total in excess of $3 Billion over the years.
Their fundraising haul, which began with $178,000 that Bill Clinton raised for his long-shot 1974 congressional bid, is on track to expand substantially with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 White House run, which has already drawn $110 million in support.
There is an art and skill to raising money, which the Clintons have perfected over the years.
