Report from Fox News Some Clinton Backers Unhappy Obama Is Not Helping More With New York Senator's Campaign Debt
Some high-profile Hillary Clinton backers are expressing disappointment that Barack Obama has not done more to help his former rival retire her campaign debt.
Federal Election Commission records show that the Clinton campaign was almost $24 million in the red at the end of July. She has shaved off only $1.2 million from the total since leaving the race in June. Senator Clinton raised just $2 million in July while Senator Obama raised more than $50 million.
Prominent Clinton backer Lynn Forrester told the Times of London, "He has provided her with a pittance compared to what the Clintons have given Obama. Her debt could have been cleared within 10 days. It's ungracious."
