Obama, Democrats raise $181 million combined in September, highest monthly re-election total

Source: Washington Post

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s campaign and Democrats have raised $181 million combined in September, pulling in the most money in one month during his re-election bid.

Obama’s fundraising haul topped the more than $114 million raised by his campaign and Democrats during the month of August. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign and Republicans have not yet reported September fundraising totals.

Obama says in a message on Twitter, the online social network, that more than 1.8 million people donated in September, including more than a half-million who had not donated before in 2008 or 2012.

Obama’s campaign ended August with nearly $89 million in the bank. It did not release its current cash on hand.

Fired up. Ready to go.

2. Love it. Doing the same today. $47.

That will pretty much tap me out for donations, but $47 is just too perfect.

4. If Mittens/RNC raised less they'll just change September's figures.That's one thing we can count on

Lies, cheating and stealing. Only, not this time will it go unpunished.

5. New bull shit conspiracy coming (Was Obama rattled by developing donor scandal story?)

http://washingtonexaminer.com/was-obama-rattled-by-developing-donor-scandal-story/article/2509895#.UHBeA4VN__o

President Obama's reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowledgeable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.
