McCain camp: Obama needs $200 million to ‘keep pace’

The hill.com is reporting that Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s campaign said in a memo Thursday that, in order to “keep pace” with the Arizona senator, Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) would have to raise $200 million between now and Election Day.

McCain’s camp argued that, with help from the Republican National Committee (RNC), it has more resources than the Illinois senator.

I think that this maybe wishful thinking and an attempt by the McCain camp to get Obama to start spending money early inorder to level the playing field.
