ROCHESTER, N.H. -- While Illinois Senator Barack Obama continues to keep secret the amount of money he raised in the first three months of the year, he is also not divulging another number: how much he won in the Senateís NCAA pool.
Asked in an interview which team he was rooting for in the NCAA menís basketball championship Ė since Ohio State and Florida are both from swing states Ė Obama didnít avoid the question.
ĒI have to admit I was for Florida because their win allowed me to win the Senate pool,Ē Obama said.
He wouldnít say how much he won but he did say that 25 people each pitched in $5. But we don't know if he was the only winner.
