Obama Campaign raises $53 million in March



President Obama’s re-election campaign and the DNC raised a combined $53 million in March, the Obama camp announced in a video.

They raised $45 million in February and $29 million in January.

Alexander Burns: “The more interesting test of Obama’s fundraising potential may come in the April numbers, now that it’s unavoidably clear who the Republican nominee will be. High on the list of reasons why Democrats believe Obama’s fundraising has been solid, but not jaw-dropping, is that there hasn’t been a general election-like contrast with a Republican opponent, and financial supporters of both the grassroots and high-dollar variety haven’t felt the urgency they otherwise might.”
