Conservative’s Q2 fundraising tops all other parties combined

The Conservative Party continues to dominate political fundraising in the second quarter of 2008, collecting 65% of the total fundraising dollars, more than all other political parties combined.

The Conservatives are also the only political party to raise more money from their own efforts than from taxpayer subsidies.
