THANKS TO former President Bill Clinton, Hillary’s 2008 presidential campaign is now debt-free, even with over 200,000 to spare.
Her president husband just kept working the emails, as well as previous donors, until it was done.
According to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission, Clinton paid the remainder of her debt in the last days of 2012. Clinton’s campaign committee paid a total of $73,000 to polling firm Penn and Schoen on New Year’s Eve, ending a debt to the firm which had, at one point, reached $5.4 million, according to CNN.
Clinton’s campaign committee at one time reportedly owed $12 million to creditors and over $13 million to Clinton herself after she loaned the campaign money.
Clinton’s campaign raised $158,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012 and began 2013 with $205,000, CNN also reported. Those funds can be used for future campaigns for federal office.
