This update means.. that the one billion mark is easily within reach for the Obama ’12 Campaign.. as the required amount was about $117 million for September and October each.. and meaning that they’ll pass the mark after about $85 million in October..
Not a big cause for celebration though.. and a bit concerning… that so much big money goes into the Democratic Party..
The Obama campaign “set a new monthly fundraising record for the 2012 election cycle, taking in more than $150 million in September as supporters rallied behind the president in the final phase of the election,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“The September total far surpasses the $114 million raised in August, when the Obama team snapped a three-month streak in which it was outraised by Republican challenger Mitt Romney. At the time, the $114 million was the most the Obama campaign had collected in any one month in the 2012 election season. The most the Romney campaign has collected so far was $111 million in August.”
