Obama Raised $66 Million in August, a Record for Single Month

Bloomberg is reporting that Barack Obama raised more than $66 million in August for his campaign against Republican John McCain, a one-month record.

…The haul may reassure some Democrats who have been worried that donations for Obama were starting to fall off. Obama has a greater fundraising burden than McCain because Obama decided to bypass public financing for the general election, banking on the idea that he can raise more than the $84.1 million grant and not have to abide by corresponding spending limits.
