Barack Obama raised $55 million in February, $20 million more than Hillary Rodham Clinton and a record sum for a single month in any presidential campaign, aides to the Democratic candidate said Thursday.
Obama's success reflected a sharp resurgence of Democratic fundraising. New numbers showed Republicans lagging behind their rivals and well below their efforts of four years ago. Much of the difference came from the Internet.
John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, has not disclosed his February sum, though his fundraising has been well behind that of Obama and Clinton.
The Federal Election Commission on Thursday disclosed that national Democratic campaign committees were significantly out-raising their Republican counterparts for the first time since the commission started counting amounts raised by party committees.
The Democrats' three main committees -- the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee -- raised $191.3 million in the 13-month period from January 2007 to the end of January 2008.
It represented a 26% increase from the same period two years ago, and an 85% jump from the same 13-month period in 2003-04.

I wonder how much Saudi oil money and oil money from their neighbors has found its way into B. Hussein Obama’s coffers
No word in there on who the donors are (it is the LAT after all), but that much certainly can’t all be coming from star struck college kids.
He needs to spend every penny of if in Pennsylvania, get Oprah off her (occasionally) fat ass and put Hitlery away in April.
A fool and his money...yada, yada, yada.
The Church of Obama-messiah is as good or better than the even the kings of televangelism...
Obama Sets Fundraising Record With $55 million,,

McCain just sent me a fundraising e-mail. I politely turned him down. The RNC is bleeding, and Obama is swimming in cash.
Someday, perhaps they’ll wake up...
Now that Democrats are doing it, why, it's the power of the people! Ain't it grand!
Oh, and they got public financing too.
