    President Barack Obama's re-election campaign and supporting committees brought in more than $114 million last month – the first time the incumbent has outraised his opponent, Gov. Mitt Romney, since April.

    Since April 2011, 3,142,457 people have offered their dollars to the president’s re-election efforts.

    The campaign also said 98% of contributions last month were $250 or less, with the average donation totaling $58.

    “That is a critical down payment on the organization we are building across the country – the largest grassroots campaign in history,” Messina said.

    I won't be long now until the repubs realize that you can not only allow the rich, or white folk in your cigar smoking uppity club.

    You're exactly right. I have a sticker on my back window that I make sure possible clients don't see till after I've been hired. And even then sometimes I hide it.

    The large database of small givers was always the reason the GOP picked Romney. He was the only GOP candidate that could actually raise comparable amounts to Obama.

    By the time the Election hits, the two campaigns will likely be at parity on funds.

    Now, the Super PACs, we may never know as many won't ever have to release a drop of information.

    Get used to big ticket campaigns.
