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.

>Monmouth County Democratic Candidates are walking the Bayshore

>Monmouth County Freeholder Candidates Glenn Mason and Amy Mallet were both out and about the Bayshore this weekend.

Mason and Mallet joined the Middletown Democratic Candidates for Township Committee, Pat Walsh and Jim Grenafege, walking Middletown’s 6th district over the weekend.
The 6th district encompasses Middletown’s Port Monmouth section east of Rt. 36 to the water front.
The candidates  said that they were greeted very positively by residents in the area, who are very upset with the local republicans in control of Middletown and complained about the  condition of many of the roads in the neighborhood, most of which had not been paved in over 20 years and flooding.
Word has it the Glenn Mason and Amy Mallet will be joining Walsh and Grenafege again next weekend walking another yet to be determined district in Middletown
