Mr. Obama is spending 75 cents for every dollar he is taking in; Mrs. Clinton is spending $1.10. (NY TIMES)

Looks like the chief Hill-raiser is a real pro at managing a budget. Had she lost Pennsylvania (and hopefully thus withdrawn), what would her PAC have done with the outstanding debt? (I'm honestly curious - I have no idea how this works)

Ugh! You've drank the Kool-Aid, too? Listen, the next time you watch an Obama speech, count the platitudes/cliches rather than listening to his drone and see if you still love him.

Hillary played it smart. She knew she had a good chance of winning PA, so of course she overspent. Money would come in if she won the state. Knowing that, it was a reasonable risk to overspend. There was never much danger of losing, especially because she didn't take the state lightly.

If she had lost, she could have raised the differences and paid her obligations off, no question. Or just paid it out of her own pocket, I imagine. The rules are the same as any other corporation, I suppose.
