Hillary Bundler: Others Are Jumping, I'll Stay on the Ship

One of Hillary Clinton’s local "Hillraisers" predicts that the campaign’s fund-raisers and donors will begin to defect from Clinton to Obama "sooner than later" if they haven’t already.

John Catsimatidis, a New York supermarket magnate and Clinton supporter, said that the number of people who had written checks to Clinton who were now sending money, or bundling checks, for Obama were "too numerous to mention."

Catsimatidis declined to name any of the donors in question.

"Listen, I’m loyal to my friend," he said.

Moments later, as we were discussing the fact that Obama has now vaulted past Clinton in some national polls, Catsimatidis said, "I go down with the ship if the ship’s going down."

UPDATE: Some of Clinton’s national finance chairs dispute such defections have taken place.
