ELIZABETH, N.J. – A day after her campaign announced a record breaking fundraising haul, Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said yesterday she would support public funding of campaigns if elected president next year.
At an event where she picked up the endorsement of New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, the New York senator said she would continue the fundraising pace that helped bring in $26 million for her presidential bid between January 1 and March 31. But, Clinton said, she hoped a different system could one day be enacted.
"I believe we have to move, eventually in our country, toward a system of public financing that really works for candidates running for federal office. I will support that as president," she said.
In fact, Clinton's campaign was the first to completely opt out of the public funding system that has existed for more than 30 years. Her advisers believe she can raise more money on her own - both in the primary and in the general election if she becomes her party's nominee - than she would have been eligible to receive under the current system.
Typical Clinton - a flat out hypocrite.
