Obama: 'I Got Outspent When I Ran' The 'First Time For Senate'

From the Daily Caller: President Barack Obama on Thursday claimed he was outspent in his 2004 Senate election race, even though he had almost six times as much money as his opponent. “I got outspent when I ran [the] first time for Senate,” he claimed as he was ending his heated campaign-trail speech in Maumee, Ohio. Obama was misleading. The Federal Election Committee’s website shows that Obama’s campaign claimed $14,807,432 in donations by December 2004. In contrast, his opponent, Alan Keyes, had only $2,545,325, according to the FEC. That’s a six-fold advantage for Obama, not a deficit.
