For weeks, rumors have been circulating of an astonishing total, and indeed it was–more than double the record $67 million the campaign raised in August. This email from Obama Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer:
Obama for America Campaign Manager David Plouffe sent an email to our supporters this morning to announce our September fundraising numbers. In the month of September, we raised over $150 million and added 632,000 new donors for a total 3.1 million donors to date. The average donation for the month was less than $100. The average contribution for the campaign is $86.
