Obama Passes Romney in August Fund Raising

$114 million

Amount raised by the Obama campaign during August, outstripping the Romney campaign (by $3 million) for the first time since April. Adding Rep. Paul Ryan to the ticket and holding the Republican convention during August didn’t push Romney’s donations for the month past Obama’s, which came from 1.1 million people giving an average of $52 each. Romney’s money came from 820,000 donors giving about $250 each. The Republicans, of course, are still blocking out the sun with super PAC donations.
