Clinton and Sanders and political money…

Workout notes: weights then an easy, social 2.7 mile walk with Barbra (Cornstalk classic route with a shorter path to the start of the route)

weight: 189.

pull ups: 5 sets of 10 with rotator cuff recoveries.
bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, 3 x 185, 7 x 170
military: standing, dumbbell, 2 sets of 10 x 45, 12 x 40
rows: 2 sets of 10 x 60 (dumbbell, each arm), 10 x 110.
pull downs: 3 sets of 10 x 160

It seemed like more than that, but it wasn’t.

When one tries to compare money and the amount that Bernie Sanders spent compared to Hillary Clinton:

2006, Hillary Clinton won 3.008 million to 1.392 million margin; that is a race with about 4.4 million voters.
2012, Bernie Sanders won 208 thousand to 73 thousand; that is a race with about 281 thousand voters.

So, Clinton’s race was 15.66 times larger than Sanders’ race, and she won 14.4 times more votes than he did.

The point: of course she would spend a lot more and have to raise a lot more money.

This isn’t a put down of Sen. Sanders; I actually like the Senator. But when one wants to talk about political fundraising and spending, one should consider their respective positions and their states.
