Also, Obama’s campaign confirmed yesterday that it is setting up a joint fund-raising committee with the Democratic National Committee, an arrangement that allows donors to write one check to be divided between the candidate and the national party, which can use its share to help the candidate. The contribution limit is $28,500, compared to $2,300 for the general election for donations directly to a candidate.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is the final decision maker in selecting either Obama or Clinton to be the Democratic Presidential candidate. This joint fundraising committee is usually set up for the nominee. John McCain has one with the Republican party. Clinton has nothing. Actually, Clinton is in debt due to her campaign spending.
