Team Hillary Plays Politics of Managing Expectations

With the June 30 filing deadline for second quarter fundraising fast approaching, the Clinton campaign is once again telling supporters know it expects to be outraised by Team Obama.

“We expect to bring in about what we did in the First Quarter, or slightly more, which should put us in the range of $27 million,” wrote campaign communications director Howard Wolfson in a memo that went out to supporters this morning. “To put that figure in some perspective, it is more than any Democrat has ever raised in the second quarter of the “off” year. While that figure is record setting, we do expect Senator Obama to significantly outraise us this quarter.”

(In the first quarter, Team Hillary raked in $26 million; Team Barack raked in $25.7.)

Both camps have been underselling themselves in recent weeks, so stayed tuned.
