14. an interesting thing is missing, at least for your exerpt

and that is the percent given to each candidate. Here is what we do know, 60% of the money went to 3 of the 6 above her. Meaning they averaged 20% each. That leaves 40% for the rest. Let's assume for the sake of argument that the 14 beneath her combined for a total of 1%. That leaves 39% split among 4, with her getting less than the other 3. That means she got less than 10% vs 20% for the ones above her. Now this is making all assumptions that favor the writer of this piece and not Hillary. In short, the writer of this piece played fast and lose with the facts.
