Description

For the first time since April, Chicago has outraised Boston, with the Obama campaign and the DNC pulling in more than $114 million in the month of August, while Romney and his supporting Republican committees raised $111.6 million. Obama’s haul marks the first time the President and DNC—which set records for prolific fundraising in 2008—have topped the $100 million mark this election cycle. Romney has hit the figure in each of the last three months. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina celebrated the victory in a statement emailed to reporters at 12:23 a.m., just 23 minutes after news of Romney’s August totals were reported.
