Cash flow and campaigning

Many people feel like this primary season is simply never ending. We've had many state contests so far and there are nine to go, with South Dakota holding its primary on June 3.

In reality, June 3 is soon. But what comes sooner are the last opportunities for campaigns to develop and place ads and to buy airtime. Early voting begins May 1 in Oregon (a winnable and important state for Senator Clinton); ads must be run there then. At the same time, radio spots - at least - must be purchased in Indiana and North Carolina in the final days prior to their primaries on May 3.

The bottom line: if you are going to donate to Senator Clinton, now truly is the time. Indiana cannot be won if Senator Clinton is outspent 3 to 1: the race is too close for that. Max out (you can donate up to $2300 to Senator Clinton's primary campaign) or give five dollars.

When the chips are down, Senator Clinton's supporters have to put in some more chips!

If you're maxed out, buy buttons, posters, stickers at

Contact local campaign offices in upcoming states and donate the merchandise to them. I was in PA volunteering and we ran out of stuff at the end just when we needed it. Make sure the store will deliver them on time.

From the gear store it doesn't count towards contribution totals.
