Hillary Clinton will soon have access Barack Obama's donor list which will surely boost her fundraising efforts to unforeseen levels as she prepares for the general election, according to a report form the Washington Examiner.
As the Clinton campaign takes control of the Democratic National Committee, she will inherit the nearly 20 million people on the e-mail list. A list that helped Obama raise over $50 million during the 2012 cycle alone.
"The best email list is the one you build yourself," one Clinton ally told The Hill. "But it doesn't hurt. There's data they can get from that, ways they can clean it up, there's stuff that can help fill a void. The more resources that they piece together the better."
Organizing for America, the nonprofit offshoot from Obama’s campaign, had rented the list for more than $1.2 million per year, The Wall Street Journal reported last year.
However, it’s unclear how many Obama loyalists will be convinced to back Clinton.
“It’s four years old,” a former Obama aide noted.
