Obama: $150 Million in September

By on 10.19.08 | 2:48PM


The Obama campaign announced this morning that it had raised a record $150 million last month, and had added 632,000 new donors to its total. The amount shattered the campaign’s previous record from August. The McCain campaign also had a record-breaking month in August, but is now operating with the $84 million provided by public financing for the general cycle and assistance from the Republican National Committee under certain limits.

In a single month, then, Obama collects nearly twice what the McCain campaign collected in matching funds.

According to the New York Times, the Obama campaign has spent $145 million on TV advertising to McCain's $90 million -- a $55 million advantage for the Democrat.
