The Illinois Senator hints that he might opt out of federal financing at Tuesday night fundraiser:

“We have created a parallel public financing system where the American people decide if they want to support a campaign they can get on the Internet and finance it, and they will have as much access and influence over the course and direction of our campaign that has traditionally reserved for the wealthy and the powerful.”

McCain has challenged Obama to stand by his previous support for public financing of general elections.
