President Barack Obama's campaign and its Democratic allies have raised $181 million in September in re-election efforts!
That is the largest total that either side has announced in the 2012 campaign yet.
The Reuters report:
The big September number and a good jobs report on Friday that showed unemployment dipping to 7.8 percent from 8.1 percent shifted some attention from Obama's lackluster debate performance on Wednesday against Republican Mitt Romney.
Helping buoy Obama's fundraising in September was his party's convention and a modest lead in the polls over Romney, whose campaign was plagued by his remark that the 47 percent of the population who receive government funds are "victims."
Obama's campaign said on Saturday that more than 1.8 million people donated to the re-election funds last month and of those, 567,000 were new donors.
The campaign also says that a larger majority of the donations - 98 percent - were $250 and the average contribution was $53.
Teamwork makes the dream work!
Hopefully President Obama's support carries him all the way back to that White House when Election day comes.
