The Obama campaign announced today that last month during September they raised $181 million. The campaign calls the number historic.
“More than 1.8 million Americans — 567,044 of whom were first-time donors — gave an average donation of just $53. And 98% of the donations were $250 and under,” Obama for America campaign manager Jim Messina stated in a press release.
Gov. Mitt Romney has not yet reported his September campaign totals but the information is expected to be made public soon.
