Hillary Looking to Raise Money in Smaller Cities

Hillary Clinton's campaign for the White House next year is casting a wide net for money, prospecting for donors in smaller cities instead of relying solely on big contributors on the East and West coasts.

"Killing two birds," a Clinton fundraiser explained to The Hill.

The person noted that the campaign was heavily working the 14 states that will hold primaries or caucuses on "Super Tuesday" — March 1.

The strategy would permit the Democratic front-runner to participate in both campaign events and fund-raising activities.

"It's a smart strategy on a couple of levels," the fundraiser said. "It helps fundraising and the organizational structure."

The approach also avoids "wear and tear" in the larger cities, the individual said.

In examining financial data on the candidates complied by the Sunlight Foundation, a government transparency group, the Hill found that the Clinton campaign has held fundraisers in at least 38 states.

These include Tulsa, Okla.; Albuquerque, N.M.; St. Louis, Mo.; Omaha, Neb.; and Birmingham, Ala.

As such, the second-tier cities in many of these states "become first-tier cities very quickly," another Clinton fund-raiser told the Hill.

"To her credit, she's got the stamina to do this," that person said.

In addition, Clinton's group has reached out to more states than any Republican seeking the presidency, the Hill reports.

Among these are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (31 states, including for his super PAC); retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson (21 states); and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (16).

Meanwhile, key Clinton rival Bernie Sanders has raised money in only 10 states, though the Vermont senator's campaign has focused more on seeking small donations online, according to the Hill.

Clinton's campaign so far has held fundraisers in more states than the entire 2012 general election campaigns of President Barack Obama (36) and Mitt Romney (37), the Hill reports.
