Tomorrow night it could all be over Barack Obama could virtually clinch the democratic presidential nomination -- expected winds at South Dakota and Montana.
And Hillary Clinton says no but do even -- most supportive financial backers -- something else.
For insight we turn to Jeanne Cummings the chief money correspondent for Politico team but he had.
Well what we've heard -- said that several weeks back.
Began between Clinton's financial backers and the Obama campaign.
-- -- got together in an effort to raise money for the Democratic Party.
But it in the course some of those events they've also started talking about when is -- time to start shifting and consolidating.
All of there support behind the nominee.
Sorry no I was talking to imitate a Barron's in in on them at Fox News Channel -- he was hearing this talk of a meeting tomorrow.
Among some of her financial backers essentially to lay the ground work for what you just said you hearing and.
Yes -- then meetings began several weeks ago and they have been very quiet but yes -- indefinite leave they're definitely been conversations.
Going line it's been pretty apparent.
In the last couple weeks that Hillary Clinton's campaign is starting to have a lot of financial troubles.
But these in these financial backers now are ready to go with the nominee -- -- they'll all party machinery starting to shift now.
With the expectation that they will be -- nominee pretty soon.
But yeah that's a great at this point seen what what does it matter if the financial backers are ticked off for pushing her.
You don't need that much money anymore -- -- primaries were over after tomorrow.
Ostensibly I guess you need money to woo super delegates if it -- me take me to a fine restaurant we could talk.
But I mean that's it right you don't need a lot of money at this stage are doing.
And now you down and if you're the clintons you invite them home because they have a lovely -- here in Washington.
But it they did she doesn't need a lot of money to continue one at this point and she's certainly been willing to put her own money -- opportunities if need be.
What's important is -- these two -- consolidate.
We -- Tennessee eight -- raising machine that we never seen before.
-- these candidates have raised almost 500 million dollars.
Independent who were once they're combined 500 million dollars and without a whole lot overlap between those don't.
All right so yeah that's what they've raised combine a separate candidates.
Could they raise a lot of money as a ticket.
Well he acts as a ticket they could probably duplicate that because all but -- I don't generally they'll never do that ruling.
Well he may not and it's a tough call -- ups and downs to both sides.
But that doesn't mean the most of -- donors won't go ahead and jump onto his.
Campaign and so he still will benefit greatly from all of those scanners coming over -- and living like -- on all the more if he says Hillary is my number two.
Well I think what -- see -- the big donors are gonna move they're gonna go with him since.
But this smaller donors say it generated a lot of money for her campaign or -- you know passionate about her candidacy.
They would move with her interest and Jeanne Cummings thank you very much.
