Shares of Hillary Clinton (HC) were up $3 in after-hours trading after she announced first-quarter revenues of $28 million, a new record in campaign fundraising. Her earnings brought a large positive shock to the market, and exceeded analysts' expectations. A big rival, John Edwards (EDW), also announced strong first-quarter revenues, bringing in $14 million. "I'm pleased with our earnings report," said a top Edwards campaign official. Barack Obama (BO) is not expected to announce revenues until later this week.
